    Just Mary

    5 stars


    Posted on

    I must admit, I thought it was a great read. I found her open and honest about her years in politics, and gave insights into the inner workings of FF.

    Mary O'Rourke's Memoir 'Just Mary'

    3 stars


    Posted on

    I am after reading former FF minister in many governments since the 1980s and her final 4 to 5 years as a senator and leader of the Seanad in the last 10 years and it adds up to a lot of political years as well as on her much loved family and her late nephew Brian Lenihan Jr. I was disappointed at the very little new insights into the world of politics and a lot of what she writes, has been written about already in interviews to the media over the last 20 years. There is little new real insights into for example some of the work the Seanad must have done in her time, no mention of any debates that struck a chord. It seemed too self-absorbed and the book would be of interest to the wider Fianna Fail family, but not outside it as much. It is nice, but not rivetting or revelatory. FF colleague Albert Reynolds' memoir was genuinely more interesting on politics and the people he met.

    What the critics say

    'It's a fascinating story...a great read' Irish Independent - John Spain This memoir is a fairly honest self-portrait of the Mary O’Rourke whom we have all come to love and hate. The Mary we have all seen over the years is the Mary we get in this book: emotional and exasperating; schoolmarmish and quite contrary; imbued with the Fianna Fáil gene and very party-political. The Irish Times - Geraldine Kennedy
