Not Irish but something I had that I thought might be of interest. “Angela Davis On Trial” a leaflet from the London based Angela Davis Defence Committee. I presume its from 1971.
The leaflet gives a background to Davis, the offences commited and why she should be released. Davis was prominent in the Black Panthers and The Communist Party of the USA.
More info on her here

From 1985 a pamphlet from Red Wedge – “Fact Not Fiction Series” No. 1. January 12, 2012

From the mid 80s a pamphlet from Red Wedge “Fact Not Fiction Series” No. 1.
It outlines the priorities of the project which was aimed at Youth. They were training, Unemployment, Allowances, Low Pay, Gay Rights, Housing and Internationalism.
Red Wedge was a collective of artists and musicians who came together in opposition to the Conservative government of Margaret Thatcher. They worked closely with the Labour Party, organising gigs and public meetings in support of their effort to defeat Thatcher in the 1987 election.
Amongst the artists involved were Billy Bragg, The Style Council, The Communards and Jerry Dammers. Others that made guest appearances included Madness, Prefab Sprout, Tom Robinson, Lloyd Cole and The Smiths.
