The Irish Sovereignty Movement was a political lobby group in the 1970s and 1980s fronted by Anthony Coughlan who was its chairman. It held meetings and produced publications campaigning on various political issues mainly to do with Irish Independence and its relationship with the Common Market, EEC and European Community, Irish neutrality, as well as Northern Ireland.

Various parts of Ireland had factories that assembled cars. There were factories in Wexford , Cork , Tipperary and many in Dublin. One factory was Armstrongs in Ringsend which in the 70’s assembled Minis and other Leyland brands. The factory was on Ringsend Road and the Archway entrance to it is still visible (pic below taken from Google Maps).
These posters and Calendars come from the Occupation of Armstrongs which lasted a number of years.
Many thanks to the sender.

Fianna Fail 1981 General Election song. I’m told that it was probably sung by Cathal Dunne, nephew of Jack Lynch. Cathal represented Ireland in the 1979 Eurovision. Apologies for the quality in the second half of the song especially.
Many thanks to the sender.
