Without Power Or Glory The Greens In Government

Without Power Or Glory The Greens In Government


A gripping account of life inside Ireland's government during an economic crisis.

The first insider account from a senior Green Party leader describing events from before the 2007 election through the trauma of the bailout and defeat in the 2011 General Election.

In 2007, the long held dreams of the Green Party to enter government became reality as they became a key part of Bertie Ahern’s Coalition. However, the dream soon turned into a nightmare as economic collapse and political chaos descended on the island, resulting in a banking crisis, an IMF Bailout and an electoral wipe-out for the party and its members. While the party’s naivety and inexperience made it ill prepared for these events, its contribution raised questions and made a difference in several important areas.
