Thanks for the Tea, Mrs. Browne: My Life with Noel Browne

Thanks for the Tea, Mrs. Browne: My Life with Noel Browne

Regular price €3.49

Noel Browne was one of the key figures in 20th-century Irish politics: a radical in his time, he campaigned for health improvements for women and children back in the '50s, when the Church and Ireland were closely aligned and state intervention in health care was considered going against Church doctrine. As Minister of Health he fell out of favour with official Ireland but became a hero to the Irish people. He was a fascinating figure, fighting poverty and illness, to serve the Irish people.

Phyllis Browne's memoir, told with humour, sharp intelligence, and courage, reveals another side to her social revolutionary husband, as well as her own politician's wife tale.
