The biography of a true Irish political legend

As harsh economic times return to Ireland, it is time to celebrate this inspirational Irishman who made his name as a grass-roots community activist and went on to hold the balance of power in Ireland.

Tony Gregory’s political life has left an exceptional legacy. Robbie Gilligan has talked to the whole “kitchen cabinet” and covers his whole career, from local agitator to elected politician, and the campaigns from 1978-2009.

Robbie Gilligan is Professor of Social Work and Social Policy at Trinity College Dublin. He has written academic books on the topics of Irish Child Care Services and Child Development. This is his first book with O’Brien Press.
