Leaflet from Gemma Hussey -1981 Seanad Election NUI June 20, 2012
From the 1981 Seanad election a leaflet for Independent candidate Gemma Hussey who was running for a seat on the NUI panel. She had won a seat in the 1977 Seanad Elections and held her seat here. She subsequently sat on the Fine Gael bench in the Seanad and was elected to the Dail in February 1982.
In the 1982 to 1987 coalition government, she served as Minister for Social Welfare and Minister for Education as well as a brief spell as Minister for Labour.
She retired from politics in 1989.
From the 1989 General Election a leaflet from Fianna Fail TD Dick Roche who was running in Wicklow. Roche polled 7,707 votes and was easily elected along with party colleague Joe Jacob.
The leaflet details achievements by the 1987 to 1989 Fianna Fail government as well as what else needed to be done. In that snap election Fianna Fail dropped four seats and ended up losing a traditional core value in entering a coalition government with the Progressive Democrats.
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.
