Drawings of Invention Designs from Noel Bennett – Independent – Ballyfermot Drimnagh -2014 Local Elections July 21, 2014

A very unusual piece of Election Ephemera here…. These designs along with a card and a handwritten note “Running in Local Election on Job Creation” were dropped in doors by Independent Noel Bennett who was running in Ballyfermot Drimnagh for a seat on Dublin City Council. He polled 102 votes.
Many thanks to the person who rescued this fairly unique Election Ephemera from a friends fireplace.





Leaflet from Peigin Doyle – Official Sinn Fein – Dublin South Central -1973 General Election

From the 1973 General Election a leaflet from Peigin Doyle who was running for Official Sinn Fein in Dublin South Central. She polled 1521 votes and missed out on a seat. She also stood in the 1974 Local Elections in Pembroke/Rathmines polling 962 votes and also missing out on a seat.
I’m told Charlie Bird was her Election Agent.
Many thanks to the person who passed on the following link which contains a series of archive Workers Party Material
