Written by one of Ireland’s leading cartoonists, this book talks about the life of Charles J Haughey, the late famous Taoiseach, horseman, yachtsman, tax evader and bon viveur in words and pictures. It also talks about the Charvet shirts, the private island and, the friends, enemies and the Irish public sacrificed along the way.
“The book serves as a concise account of Haughey’s extraordinary life and in this regard serves a very handy quick read reference guide to an unforgettable politician.” – Irish Echo
