Review:

For Bertie Ahern and the Drumcondra Mafia (2009)

Fast-paced and tightly written . . . . Surveys show us to be appalled or enthralled with politics, and if you fit under either of these headings, this is for you. (Sunday Tribune)

[The authors] have peered into the mist that surrounds the financial affairs of "The Bert" and come up with a very lucid and entertaining account of the story so far. (Irish Times)

This is not just the story of the Drumcondra mafia; it is also a very readable account of Bertie's travails at the Mahon Tribunal and of his attempts to spin the story to the public. (Sunday Times)

"Follow the money!" was the watchword of the underground car-park source, "Deep Throat", as he guided Washington Post reporters Carl Bernstein and Bob Woodward through the intricacies of the Watergate affair. This is exactly what Clifford and Coleman do, as they lead us through the bewildering saga of alleged "dig-outs", curious foreign-currency transactions, parcels of cash in strange locations and other bizarre financial arrangements that make up the weird and wonderful world of Ahern and his money. (Irish Times)
