From the 1975 Galway West and Galway North East by-elections an ad for Fine Gael candidates Paul Connaughton and John Mannion. Both by-elections were caused by the death of Fianna Fail TDs. The son of the Late Michael Kitt won the Galway North-East by-election for Fianna Fail, whilst the daughter of the Late John Geoghegan, Maire Geoghegan Quinn won the seat for Fianna Fail in Galway West.
We also have a great message from Liam Cosgrave extolling the virtues of the Government of the time. We learn that “The Government (a) removed the ceiling of 500 homes per aeriel imposed by the Fianna Fail government on cable television….”. Plenty of other good information from the time in the message too.
