From the 1985 Local Elections a leaflet for Workers Party candidate Tom Crilly running in the Pembroke Ward.
Of the times, he writes
One of the reasons for the closure of many of our local industries has been Dublin Corporation decisions to rezone land from industrial use to office block accommodation. These decisions have benefited speculators but have put thousands of workers on the dole. Tom will strongly oppose the further destruction of our industries, as happened at the International Meat Company, Bolands Bakery and Irish Glass Bottle Company, and he will oppose the planned closure of Dublin Port.
Tom will campaign for the introduction of lead free petrol
