Published by Liberties Press
The last book published by Dr FitzGerald, this personal and anecdotal memoir was released in December 2010. In it, the former Taoiseach speaks candidly of his family life and his experience and estimation of the many national and international figures he has encountered through his long career.
In Just Garret, Dr FitzGerald writes frankly about his upbringing, his parents’ involvement in the Independence movement – and their disagreements about the Treaty, his early years in school and college and his gradual entry into politics. He reflects honestly on his time as minister for Foreign Affairs, and later as Taoiseach. The book includes new material and opinion on key figures such as Charles Haughey, Margaret Thatcher and John Major – as well as the emerging peace in Northern Ireland and his role in how it came about. Ireland’s role in the EU and Garret’s advocacy in the referendas on the European Union also feature. The key importance of his family life and the huge influence his wife Joan had on his career reveal a more informal and humorous person who was a compelling voice in Irish public affairs right up until his passing in May, 2011.
