Eight More of the Worst Irish Election Posters Ever

8. Mick Wallace

Mick Wallace is an independent politician, former football manager and a property developer from Wexford. Mick is a colourful character best know for his shock of long hair, “electric salmon” shirts and his often outspoken demenour. In the above poster poster from his 2011 campaign, Mick relied on his brand association with a lovely shade of “electric Salmon” and a no nonsense “Scruff of the neck” tagline.

5. Liam Johnston

Liam Johnston is a former member of the Green Party and a current member of Fis Nua. The above poster shows a less than happy Liam surrounded by the alluring might of Microsoft Words design capabilities. The new vision didn’t include considered design.

4. Derek McDowell

Derek McDowell is a member of the Labour party and an authority on the subject of political hygiene. In this very informative poster Derek gives some squeaky clean advice for his constituents. Our only questions are, how long does ten years of the PD’s and Fine Fail take to wash off and what brand of soap should be used during this process?

3. Alan Shatter

Fine Gael politician and part time erotic novelist, Alan Shatter returns to our listings with this tabloid magazine inspired poster. Alan dons a full trailer park tuxedo and unleashes his most sultry Captain Kirk pose in this truly horrendous piece. TV’s Kirk once said, “a little suffering is good for the soul”. Apparently Shatter agreed!
