1 Review
Party time follows life through various events such as school, college, looking for work and looking for love, and is set in the context of some of the most dramatic political events in Irelands's history. A down to earth, intriguing look at life in Irish politics for the ordinary person, it examines how politics has shaped the person Fallon is and has influenced the course of his life. It deals with situations that he encountered along the way such as leaving home, the Dublin/Culchie rivalry, the excitement of sporting victories and the importance of local pride. Witty insights show how any family so involved in politics, even at local level, live their lives around that party. It explains tongue in cheek, this love of a political movement, and illustrates the commitment it takes - and of course, why they are willing do it.
