From 1982 an ad for a Pro Life Amendment Campaign Fashion Show in Tralee June 22, 2013

Filed under: Abortion,Kerry — irishelectionliterature @ 6:26 pm

From November 1982 an ad for a Pro Life Amendment Campaign Fashion Show in Tralee.  The Fashion show was held six days after the November 1982 General Election and would have been part of The Pro life Amendment Campaigns efforts to have a Referendum on Abortion. The pressure from the campaign led to an Abortion Referendum less than a year later.
The Rosaleen O’Connell of Valentia island is mostlikely the wife of Kerry football legend Mick O’Connell, who was himself a former Councillor.

A Rather extreme Pro Life Leaflet from the ‘Childrens Protection Society’ June 18, 2013


A Rather extreme Pro Life Leaflet from the ‘Childrens Protection Society’ which was recently delivered to TDs and Councillors all over the country. The leaflet is signed by John Clerkin. I’m wondering if its the same person who ran in 1991 with the slogan ‘Jobs for Youth – Not Condoms’ (Leaflet here)
Apologies if anyone is offended but the leaflet illustrates the type of material public representatives have been subjected to in recent times.

Many Thanks to the sender.

From 1992 Progressive Democrats Des O’Malley outlines the partys reasons to vote No on the Abortion Referendum. June 8, 2013


From a 1992 Progressive Democrat leaflet Dessie O’Malley outlines the position of the party regarding the 3 Abortion Referenda to be held on the same day as the General Election. Whilst they asked for a YEs vote for the Right to Travel and Right to Information, they asked for a NO vote on the Abortion issue. Many of the reasons for voting against the Referendum outlined by O’Malley are just as relevant today as they were then.

Ad from The Christian Solidarity Party urging voters in Meath East to vote for Ben Gilroy of Direct Democracy Ireland. April 12, 2013


An interesting ad in the April edition of Alive! from The Christian Solidarity Party asking voters to vote for Ben Gilroy of Direct Democracy Ireland.

In the 2011 General Election Jane Murphy of The Christian Solidarity Party in Dublin South also advertised Direct Democracy Ireland on her leaflet.

Richard Greene is the leader of the Christain Solidarity Party. A former Green Party Councillor he was involved in a party Muintir na hÉireann and has run as an Independent Pro Life candidate also.

DDI would like to make it clear that the CSP is a COMPLETE separate organisation with COMPLETE separate people running it. Separate religious agenda – where DDI has complete none – TOTALLY SEPARATE people running it’s rules and constitution and separate founders. Separate headquarters and again separate head-office location.
