From the mid eighties a Christmas Card issued by The Birmingham Six Committee. “The Birmingham Six , Remember Them This Christmas” . It asked the recipient to light six candles in the window on Christmas Day to show your belief in the innocence of Hugh Callaghan, Paddy Hill, Gerard Hunter, Richard McIlkenny, William Power and John Walker.
It also asked the recipients to write to Douglas Hurd, Peter Barry, TDs , MP and other bodies.
The Birmingham Six were wrongly convicted of the 1974 Birmingham Pub Bombings and sentenced to life imprisonment in 1975. After a long campaign they were released in 1991.
Many thanks to the Sender.

“Hello! I’m Back” -Christmas Card from The Communist Party of Ireland 2010 December 24, 2010


With this Card may I wish you all a Happy Christmas and New Year. A New Year that I’m sure will have me busy with the forthcoming Election.
Many thanks for all those who’ve sent stuff throughout the year, its much appreciated. Its nice to post material other than my own which broadens the scope of the material posted. As ever should you get a leaflet or the like I’d love a copy (or the original).

Was sent these images, alas the sender does not have better quality images or the inside pages of the cards.
The first Christmas Card for Domestic abuse victims is very good and were anyone to have a better quality image or indeed the full card I’d love to post it.
We also have a card from the Orange Order and one of Marx with a Santa hat.
