Leaflet from Bill Tormey -Fine Gael -2011 Seanad Elections September 11, 2013

From the 2011 Seanad Elections a leaflet from Bill Tormey of Fine Gael who was running for a seat on the Cultural and Educational panel. In the leaflet we learn that he is the only Fine Gael public rep for vast areas of Dublin North West  and that he is a health campaigner. There is no mention of Reform or Seanad abolition. Instead it also focuses on his loyalty to Fine Gael (He stood in a number of elections for Labour and a number also as an Independent before finding his home in Fine Gael).

“Group Fixtures & Venues 2002 World Cup Korea Japan” -Brendan Brady -Fine Gael- 2002 General Election Dublin North West May 30, 2011

Candidates or TDs will often send a card with useful phone numbers (sometimes with a magnet so it can be stuck on the fridge), a guide to local services, Budget guides, guides to Benefits and so on all in the hope that you will hold on to them.
World Cups and other sporting occasions also lead to a flurry of leaflets with fixture guides and the like. This one is a fixture guide for the 2002 World Cup produced by Fine Gael Dublin North west candidate Brendan Brady. The 2002 General Election was held on the 17th of May and Brady polled 2,082 votes and missed out on a seat.
