9781905483686: Just Garret: Tales from the Political Front Line

In this personal memoir, the twice former Taoiseach speaks candidly of his family life, his experience and his estimation of the many national and international figures he has encountered through his long and distinguished career.

Dr. FitzGerald writes frankly about his upbringing, his parents, his involvement in the Independence movement, their disagreements about the Treaty, his early years in school and college and his gradual entry into politics. He reflects honestly on his time as minister for Foreign Affairs, and later on his tenure as Taoiseach.

The book includes new material and opinion on key figures such as Charles Haughey, Margaret Thatcher and John Major, as well as his role in the emerging peace in Northern Ireland, Ireland's role in the EU and Garret's advocacy in the referendas on the European Union also feature. His memoir gently lifts the layers of his public life back to reveal a much-cherished family life and the huge influence his wife Joan had on his career, rendering a portrait of an informal, humane and witty person who was an ever compelling voice in Irish public affairs right up until his passing in May, 2011.

About the Author:

GARRET FITZGERALD was twice elected as Taoiseach of Ireland, and up until his passing in 2011 was still extremely active, on the public-speaking circuit, in his capacity as a board member of several major public and private organizations, and as chancellor of the National University of Ireland. Dr. FitzGerald, who studied economics and law and taught political economy in UCD, was also a columnist for the Irish Times and a regular contributor to journals and political magazines.

Review:

Much is known about the public man [Garret FitzGerald], but in this new autobiography he writes frankly and often movingly about his upbringing, his parents' involvement in the independence movement- and their frequent disagreements about the treaty at the dinner table. --Irish Voice
