Electoral Ephemera

Some people may remember the 1969 general election for its red scare, including the "Reds under the Bed" rantings of Kevin Boland and a not insignificant number of his Fianna Fáil colleagues. The Labour Party and their Moscow masters. Seems funny now, but it may well have kept some of the troop in line.

It strikes me that Alan might be interested in your photos.
