Mary O'Rourke's story and what really happened

Some months ago I ordered Mary O’Rourke’s book Just Mary in my local library. On principle I would not wish to add to this individual’s wealth by buying her story.

After a number of weeks I returned to enquire if the book was available but was told there was a long waiting list so it could be some time before it was available.

I’m in no hurry. I’m not in the least interested in O’Rourke’s story on a personal basis. I’m interested in comparing what she has to say with what actually happened during her time as a politician. I have no doubt that the facts will be millions of miles away from her account of events.

What I find incredible is the popularity of such rubbish publications.

O’Rourke is a loyal member of the most corrupt political party in the country, the party that is principally responsible for the immense damage done to Ireland and its people.

She’s also a faithful supporter and admirer of the criminal politician Haughey, the man who was principally responsible for infecting Irish public life with the disease of corruption.

I find it disturbingly ironic that people who cannot afford to buy the book because of the financial devastation caused by a corrupt Fianna Fail are eagerly queuing up to read all about one of the party’s most influential members.

One thought on “Mary O'Rourke's story and what really happened”

  1. No surprise at all, the same idiots kept voting FF back into power. The lack of intelligence of the Irish voting public has always astonished me.
