Joe Doyle, William Egan -Fine Gael -1991 Local Elections- Pembroke March 22, 2010

From the 1991 Local Elections, Fine Gael candidates for the Pembroke Ward, the late Joe Doyle and William Egan.
Joe Doyle was elected. Note how in the ‘interest of the environment’ they weren’t using any posters which was unusual at the time (and indeed still is).
Joe Doyle, a former Sacristan, had two terms in the Dail, from November 1982 until 1987 and again from 1989 to 1992. He was also elected to the Seanad for two terms.
