“The Greens Won’t Let You Down” – David Healy 2007 General Election Dublin North East June 26, 2011

From the 2007 General Election a leaflet from Green Party candidate in Dublin North East David Healy with the memorable slogan of… “The Greens Won’t Let You Down”.
Healy, who was seen as a possible outside chance of a seat, polled 2,349 votes.



Sadhbh O’Neill, David Healy -Green Party -1992 GE Dublin NE January 12, 2010

David Healy, a prominent Green member/councillor in Dublin for many years. The mention of Esperanto is interesting as a number of Founding members such as Christopher Fettes were enthusiastic about Esperanto.
Sadhbh O’Neill who famously was elected to Dublin City Council in 1991 despite not having campaigned (She was in the US at the time).
Oddly enough, that victory is attributed as part of why the Greens did not do particularly well (or as well as they thought they would) in the 1992 General Election, as some candidates/branches felt that the vote would turn out, canvass or no canvass.
The 6 Billion would have refered to money Albert promised we’d get from Europe.
