This book exposes the venom and charity of this prelate and is the first collection of McQuaid’s correspondence, warts and all.

John Charles McQuaid was a voluminous correspondent. However, through astute selection this book gives a flavour of the range of his activities in educational, health, ecclesiastical, political and international affairs.

McQuaid thought like a demon, wrote like an angel and was meticulous in attending to every detail of his ministry as Archbishop of Dublin. This book exposes the venom and charity of this prelate, who touched and tampered with the lives of so many both in Ireland and internationally. McQuaid's, or 'The Archbishop His Grace', as he liked to be known, correspondents range from Crumlin housewives to papal nuncios.

There was no aspect of the religious and social life of Catholic Ireland that escaped his eye and this legendary attention to detail is reflected in his illuminating correspondence.
