Description

The events surrounding the formation of Ireland’s government in 2016 took place during March, April and May of that year, following the general election held in February, which failed to produce an overall majority for any of the country’s outgoing political alliances and resulted in a hung parliament. In this definitive inside account of the 2016 coalition, cabinet minister Shane Ross reveals the bitter internal battles fought with the old Blueshirts, the crises when the coalition came close to collapse and the sometimes fraught personal relationships between the fifteen figures who made up the government.
