Although they have become more frequent in recent years, Irish political memoirs are still relatively rare.
Even rarer still are political memoirs that still are frank, newsworthy and fun, like this one from Mary O'Rourke. She writes of personal and political events; of her family background and her early involvement in politics: of the many senior political figures to whom she was close, especially Charles Haughey and Bertie Ahern; of her two beloved Brians, her brother and nephew, both of whom died before their time; of her successes and disappointments. She does all this with honesty, energy and a complete absence of self-pity or self-justification.
