With a Little Help from My Friends: Planning Corruption in Ireland

With a Little Help from My Friends: Planning Corruption in Ireland

Regular price €3.00

This is a book about greed. It is a blow-by-blow account of the rise of corruption in Irish politics and planning, focusing in particular on the unholy alliance forged between crooked politicians, planners and builders in the Greater Dublin area.

Cullen draws together the various strands investigated by the Flood tribunal in a coherent narrative. He traces the manoeuvres of a self-serving and secret network of selfish, grasping men and the repeated attempts to expose the irregularities that many suspected and none could prove. He reminds us of the crippling effect of planning corruption on the lives of ordinary people.

Sometimes angry, sometimes unwittingly hilarious, always gripping, this is a terrific read.
