Hell at the Gates

Former podcast guest Daniel McConnell, now working for the Irish Examiner has teamed up with John Lee, political editor of the Irish Daily Mail to release a book "Hell at the Gates" that documents the political situation around the bank guarantee of 2008 where the Irish Government agreed to take a bailout from the Troika in order to save Ireland’s failing economy and in particular its failing banks.

The book has been getting rave reviews and has managed to get nearly all the main players' accounts and versions of events, so if you have any interest as to how one of the biggest political decisions of our recent lifetime was made, this is the book for you.

It's available from Mercier Press and most reputable bookshops now.
