Fine Gael, “No Irish Here!” – A Flashback From 1938

The wonderful Irish Election Literature blog does it again with this Fine Gael election poster from 1938 protesting against “Migrants” in County Meath. That’s Irish-speaking migrants, as FG opposes the breaking up of large estates held by absentee landlords to create the Ráth Chairn Gaeltacht or Irish speaking community in Meath. 

Good to see that contemporary Fine Gael has remained true to its anti-Irish roots. Some things never change, hey?

    1. Thanks for the Comment, and you are quiet correct it doesn’t. However it does say “No More Migrants”. The migrants are Irish speakers, therefore the “No Irish Here”, a reference to the Irish language and FG’s historic antipathy to the language (and its speakers).
