banners everywhere

It's election time in Ireland again.  The great thing about it is that is lasts only until people vote on Feb. 26th.  As soon as the election date was set in motion by Taoiseach Enda Kenny on Feb. 3rd, the political machines went to work and the banners began to appear on the light poles throughout the country.  On our way to SuperValu this afternoon, we saw who was running to represent our county. Mr. Pringle is currently representing our county and is seeking to be re-elected.  In case you miss one poster, the next is not far away.  The whole process is fast and to the point and doesn't last forever.

  1. Our election campaigns are short too, just a few weeks. It's quite refreshing when you contrast it to the American campaigns which seem to start the day after the election.

  4. I LOVE short election campaigns. This year our fearless leader decided on a longe campaign...and lost. Viva the short campaign!

  5. Same here Bill, short election time but quite long enough. I'd go crazy if they went on as long as they do in the US.
