from the 1991 Local Elections for the Celbridge LEA “Maynooth Labour News” urging a number one vote for John McGinley. On the back it asks for a number 2 for Colm Purcell and a number 3 for Emmet Stagg. It has details of the ‘ROAR’ campaign (Repair our awful roads) , a picture of what was the public toilets in Maynooth and a few other local items.
Stagg and Purcell were elected, although John McGinley was co-opted to the council in 1992 to replace Emmet Stagg.

Dirty Tricks Anti Shane Ross Leaflet from the 1991 Local Elections March 13, 2012


From the 1991 Local Elections in Bray an anti Shane Ross leaflet that was distributed by dissafected Fine Gael members in Bray. (In over 2,500 posts this is the first time I’ve actually redacted a leaflet, such are the scurrilous nature of the accusations made about Shane Ross in the leaflet.)
The candidacy of Ross caused a split in Fine Gael in North Wicklow leading to a number of former Fine Gael members (and Councillors) standing as Independent “Voice of Wicklow” candidates. In the end despite the dirty tricks campaign Ross was elected having polled 642 votes. He stood again for Fine Gael in the 1992 General Election but failed to win a seat.
