What’s in a name? In Irish politics it seems that the brothers, sisters, aunts, cousins, sons and daughters of politicians have a special ability to win seats in Dáil Éireann, especially when they follow one of their relatives into politics.

In this fascinating look at the topic of family in Irish politics, Johnny Fallon explores some of the most familiar names in Irish politics and the history of the dynasties behind them. With a sceptical eye he assesses the current standing of some of the best known families after what has been a traumatic time in Irish politics and explores the ruthlessness, the skulduggery and the mechanics of keeping a dynasty going.

With an introduction from RTÉ Political Correspondent David Davin-Power, the book is a must for political buffs and casual readers alike.
