The Great Betrayal (Paperback)

John Drennan


As the curtain falls on the 31st Dail, the government have fallen drastically out of favour, something that is hard to believe if we cast our minds back just a few years to 2011 when they rode a wave of populist sentiment all the way to Dail Eireann. No Irish government has ever enjoyed a larger majority - and none has ever so comprehensively squandered its mandate. How did they fall so far so fast? Written with the unique insight of one of the most original observers of Irish politics, The Great Betrayal provides an entertaining and enlightening narrative of a government that, in the eyes of many, betrayed the hopes of the Irish electorate for a democratic revolution, almost immediately after being elected with a thumping majority. The Great Betrayal is required reading for anyone wondering how it all went wrong and where we might go from here.
