John Charles McQuaid: Ruler of Catholic Ireland
This biography looks at one of Ireland's most powerful figures who became effectively the ecclesiastical Prime Minister of a clerical state. The book examines his years as Archbishop of Dublin and Primate of Ireland, and his subsequent amassing of religious, political and social power which he exercised with unscrupulous severity. So much so that he was effectively the co-author with De Valera of the Irish constitution.
