Even More Do Election Posters Work? #ge11 #rte11 #vinb

On a spin out to Wicklow on the Harley today I couldn't resist taking a few more photos of election posters - they still do not influence my vote. Two major themes I noted today in the Wicklow constituency (where I first voted for Paudge Brennan of Fianna Fáil in 1981) is the lack of women standing, and that many posters have been vandalized. Only one out of the 24 candidates standing in Wicklow is a woman (Anne Harris of Labour). Dick Roche's posters have come in for some vandalism - his first name giving the vandals some childish ammo to use. It's not just Fianna Fáil candidates who are targets of the vandals - several of  Labour's Tom Fortune's posters around Newtownmountkennedy have been defaced. Here's a selection of posters I saw today:

This is my favourite one so far.
(N11 - Kilmacanogue)

Dick Roche - "Not In My Face!".
(N11 - Kilmacanogue)

Sinn Féin promise no U-turns on policy.
(N11 - Newtownmountkennedy) 

Two and a Half Men.
Fine Gael's all male ticket in Wicklow.
(N11 - Newtownmountkennedy)

Tom Fortune of Labour loses face.
(N11 - Newtownmountkennedy)

Andrew Doyle looking for three #1 votes.
(N11 - Kilmacanoge)
