Many thanks to Tony Williams for forwarding this to both the Left Archive and Irish Election Literature. Produced on behalf of the Irish Worker League, which was the Larkin party, it outlines IWL candidates for the 1930 Dublin Municipal League.
The group was notable for its links to the Comintern and Moscow.
Avowedly working-class it outlines a range of issues on which the candidates are standing. These include Union Wages, Union Conditions, Security of Tenancy, Reduction of Municipal House Rents, the Continuance of Rent Restriction Act and Houses.
The candidates include Frank Cluskey, a Trade Union Secretary (Butchers), Hilary Williams a Bricklayer and John Sunderland a Railway Worker.
A very useful addition to the Archive. Any other materials from the Irish Worker League would be very welcome.
