Strongly Independent, weakly Fianna Fáil?

May 8th, 2009 · 18 Comments · Elections, Irish Politics, Uncategorized

The tales of bad receptions on doorsteps and signs warning FF/Green Party canvassers to stay away continue to accelerate.  Finding posters of Fianna Fail candidates from Dublin to Letterkenny today was difficult – lots of the Chairman (more about him and the way he might smile at you later) and plenty for various  Sinn Fein, Fine Gael and the rare Green candidates.  Where there are posters the logos are very very difficult to see!

The stories and pictures are starting to come in from around the country including this evening pictures of  the first candidates who are confused.  Indeed some could be done under the politicians descriptions act if we had one!

Cllr. Tom Reilly is a member of Fianna Fáil and is elected to Galway County Council and Tuam Town Council. He is seeking re-election to both. If you examine his profile on the Fianna Fáil website you’ll see he’s a member of many organisations and he’s very much a member of Fianna Fáil.

Except if you are walking through the streets of Tuam you’ll see these and find difficulty in locating the FF Logo!

Yes it would appear Tom’s aiming to be Your Strong Independent Candidate – Independent of what?

Update – *Actually the poster is on top of one of  genuine Independent Cllr Sean Canney!

All other sightings of interesting local or european election memorabilia are most welcome to tips (@)
