Something unusual here that may be of interest. A leaflet from the Belgian Centrist Party CDH entirely done as a comic book. Although Cartoons regularly feature in Irish Election material I’ve only once seen a comic strip which was in A Sinn Fein leaflet.
Many thanks to the sender who notes

“It’s from the recent elections here. I particularly like the two candidates holding shields fighting against privatisation.”

Eamon De Valera died on the 29th of August 1975, here we have a piece written on De Valera by Sean McEntee. It is from the Winter 1975 edition of “Iris Fianna Fail” the Fianna Fail Party Journal.  It is a lovely bit of history and I have also included the “De Valera Pictures” part of the paper.
