How a typical Irish emigrant rose to a position of influence at the highest levels of US and Irish politics. A remarkable firsthand account of an Irish emigrant who began as a part-time footballer and house-painter and became a journalist, author, founder and publisher of two newspapers, a magazine and website, as well as a leading advocate for immigration reform for the `illegal' Irish in the United States. He played a pivotal role in the Northern Ireland peace process, securing a US visa for Gerry Adams in 1994 and acting as intermediary between the White House and Sinn Fein during a critical time in the peace negotiations. Niall O'Dowd has been described as: `the authentic voice of the Irish in America, who has more knowledge of this community than almost anyone else alive,' by Jim Dwyer, New York Times and Pulitzer Prize winner.
