Go-Ahead with O'Neill


An Ulster Unionist election poster featuring the then Unionist leader and Northern Ireland Prime Minister Terence O’Neill. 'Go Ahead with O'Neill, Vote Unionist.' Poster printed blue and red on white with an image of O'Neill and the Union Jack flag. This poster dates from the February 1969 NI Parliamentary election. O’Neill had a narrow victory over Rev. Ian Paisley in his Bannside constituency and although O’Neill’s supporters won an overall majority he failed to completely defeat his opponents within the Ulster Unionist Party.
