American or Irish, Republican or Democrat: many people are one or the other, but Larry Donnelly has been all of them. Born into an Irish American political dynasty, Larry was destined for a successful career in politics from the start. Having completed law school, he entered the ‘family business’ and involved himself in political life, experiencing everything from town hall meetings to the highest offices. Years later, his career brought him to Galway, his ancestral home county, and love kept him in Ireland. Now a highly respected commentator, Larry’s unique insight into the influence of Ireland on American politics, his reflections on growing up in an Irish American political family, his views from both sides of the house, as well as his take on the current state of his homeland, make for a fascinating read. ‘Entertaining, informative and passionate. A must-read for fans of US politics’ Caitriona Perry, Journalist, Broadcaster and Author ‘Remarkable and revealing – as much a social history as a personal memoir’ Kevin Cullen, Boston Globe
