Some very colourful and hard hitting poster propaganda were at play - indeed in all electoral periods and times. Some of these were lost /seized and then recovered via Michael Noyek's writ during the 1918 elections following the raids and eventual closure of the Gaelic Press and Art Depot.
"We got our objective in the breathing space created our material became available" - Michael Noyek notes in his witness statement to the Bureau of Military History - and the writ itself was dismissed as "frivolous" a few weeks later but the Sinn Fein electoral propaganda was made available for the overwhelming success at the polls . . . .
