Website screenshot reading: Nan Joyce became the first Traveller to stand in an Irish election

In the second 1982 general election, held on the 24th of November 1982, Nan Joyce stood as an independent candidate in Dublin South-West, becoming the first Traveller to do so. She polled 581 votes.

Joyce was co-chairperson of the Committee for the Rights of Travellers, which had been formed earlier that year. Among her policies was a call for full civil and human rights for all Travellers as full Irish citizens and a Minister to co-ordinate Traveller welfare provision in the country.

You can read an account of the Committee and the background to its formation in this article: Traveller Activism in the 1980s: The Committee for the Rights of Travellers and Mincéir Misli.

Scanned text reading: When the decision of the 82nd Ard-Fheis of Sinn FĂ©in to recognise the Leinster House assembly was announced on 2nd November those who wished to defend the Republican position moved with speed.

They withdrew from the Dublin Mansion House in an orderly and dignified manner and walked down Dawson Street behind the flag of Clann na nGael, the Republican Scouts. The flag was carried by Nóirín Ní Liatháin. She had stood outside the Mansion House in full uniform and holding the flag throughout the Ard-Fheis. Beside her was 2 poster appealing to delegates to uphold the Republic.

In Dawson Street an announcement was made that a meeting would be held in the West County Hotel, Chapelizod.

Half an hour later the delegates had begun to re-assemble. By six o'clock there was a muster of over 130, accompanied by an eager national and international press corps of over 40. Ruairí Ó Brádaigh asked the media representatives to leave the room “until we decide who we are and what we are”. He had led the opposition to the recognition of Leinster House during the five-hour debate.
