This is a very useful addition to the Archive, a document produced by Tallaght Labour Party in late 1969. Donated by Damian O’Broin, who has written an accompanying post here, this provides an example of branch publications of a type of which there are very few in the Archive.
That’s a pity because such documents show the interests of those involved in community and constituency activism on a day to day, week to week basis - so any similar would be very welcome. And this document is no different with a concentration on Ground Rents, the Housing Problem and Local County Council News.
One fascinating line in the document notes that ‘There is a great deal of confusion to-day concerning the Social Policy of the LP, and we hope by these bulletins to explain the principles by which we stand’.
