From the 1987 General Election, ‘Ryan Stands on His Record’,  a leaflet from Labour Party TD for Tipperary North John Ryan outlining what had been delivered by the coalition government both Locally and Nationally over the previous five years.
Ryan polled 4,558 votes and missed out on a seat as newcomer Michael Lowry claimed a seat for Fine Gael and Michael O’Kennedy and Michael Smith won seats for Fianna Fail.
Many Thanks to the sender.

Leaflet from John Ryan -Labour Party-Tipperary North 1989 General Election April 18, 2011


From the 1989 General Election a leaflet from Labour Party candidate for Tipperary North John Ryan. As the European Elections were also held on the same day the leaflet asks for votes for the Labour Party European candidates in Munster Michael Ferris and Eileen Desmond.
“You can vote against these Savage Cuts and Injustices” is something that would be apt today. Indeed many of the issues are the same, just add a burst property bubble to them.
In this election John Ryan failed to win back the seat he lost in 1987, although he later regained the seat in 1992 (his record at Electionsireland.org)
Many thanks to the Sender.

John Ryan- Democratic Left- Limerick East By Election 1998 October 21, 2009


John Ryan from the 1998 Limerick East By-election (Caused by the death of Jim Kemmy). It took place on the 11th March along with the Dublin North By-election. As far as I’m aware it was the last day the name Democratic Left appeared on an Irish ballot paper.
The By-Election was won by Labours Jan O’Sullivan. Fianna Fail only got 23% of the vote.
John Ryan had been elected to Limerick Corporation in 1991 as a Workers Party candidate and there were hopes that he would build a substantial base from that.
Here we have testaments about Ryan from ‘Limerick people’ and also from the Parties top table.
