This episode introduces a new project from Irish Election Literature  and the Irish Left Archive. Snapshots of Political Action aims to bring together material distributed at individual demonstrations, marches, rallies and protests in Ireland, providing a view of the different political strands and groups that come together in campaigns. We’re joined by Alan Kinsella of Irish Election Literature — whose collection has provided all the material included so far — to discuss public demonstrations in Ireland, the issues and groups involved, and the insight into politically activity we can get from protest materials.

You’ll find the Snapshots of Political Action materials on our website. There are several protests added there already, and a lot more to come.

Many thanks to Alan for including the Irish Left Archive in this project. If listeners have collected materials from protests that could be included, we’d be delighted to have them. You’ll find Alan’s email and social media links on his website: Contact Irish Election Literature .

Alan also spoke to us in Episode 5 of the podcast about the Irish Election Literature project, his collection of political ephemera, and his podast, The Others , in which he tells the stories of some of the smaller groups and parties to have stood in elections over the years.

The Irish Left Archive Podcast aims to hear from a broad range of voices on the Left. We are not affiliated with any particular political organisation, and the views, information, or opinions expressed by guests are solely their own and do not necessarily represent those of the Irish Left Archive or those associated with it.
