Mary is the first name of all the women ministers in the Irish government and of the country's two women presidents to date. Such is the popularity of the name among Ireland's women political office holders that, children are inclined to believe that all presidents of the country are called Mary, says first time author Mary Banotti in her new book. The author sets out to find out what unites all the political Marys and what drives them to take the risks that are essential for success. Why do so many Marys emerge from a variety of families to take their place in public life in a country that had so few women in public life until relatively recently?

Book Description Columba Press, Ireland, 2008. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Mary, traditionally the most popular name for girls in Catholic Ireland, transcended political, geographical and social boundaries (and as far as girl babies born today are concerned it is hardly ever considered.). As one of the interviewed politicians (Mary Upton) said to Mary Banotti: They don t make Marys any more! Most Irish women who have achieved success in political life, including presidents Mary Robinson and Mary McAleese, have been called Mary. What is it about Mary? In the current government high-profile ministers with that name include Minister for Health, Mary Harney, Minister for Education, Mary Hanafin and Minister for Agriculture Mary Coughlan. Sixteen of the twenty-two women elected to Dail Eireann in the 2007 election are called Mary. Mary Banotti interviewed all the political Marys she could find to elicit their views on their name, their families, their political traditions and their aspirations. The result is an engaging, entertaining and informative book.". Seller Inventory # AGM9781856079624
