It's rare that a political diary of such significance comes along. The O'Brien Press is proud to announce that Councillor Maurice Hickey has agreed to share his experiences in this informative and insightful account of his political exploits. Councillor Maurice Hickey is a leader in his community, the man who gets things done. And what needs doing in the parishes of Killdicken, Honetyne and Glengooley mostly relates to blocked drains, mad dogs, parish festivals, clerical appointments, over-zealous guards and the occasional romantic dalliance.
Global events are not the concern of this councillor or his constituents. Looming large over the political and personal life of Councillor Hickey is the Mother. She is his spin-doctor, cook, inspiration, conscience - and his fiercest critic!
A hilarious account of local politics from Pat Shortt's legendary creation, the esteemed Councillor Hickey. This diary could be described as an invaluable piece of social history by people who know nothing about it. If you enjoy watching a man wade through one self-made mess after another, then this is the book for you!
