"Liberties Press is delighted to announce the publication of Leading Lights by Eamon Gilmore. In this book the Leader of the Labour Party makes surprising revelations about people who have influenced him personally and politically. It is an enjoyable read and a fascinating insight into the man who could be the first Labour leader to become Taoiseach. Eamon Gilmore, Leader of the Labour Party has dedicated his life to his family and to politics. He has served in the Dáil for twenty-one years. However, despite his public profile and national popularity, not much is known about the man behind the leader. In Leading Lights Gilmore discusses the people who moved him to go into politics and influenced the development of his political beliefs. Interweaving his own personal narrative around the figures who influenced him throughout his formative years and career, the book is an important insight into the man behind the politician. Gilmore's inspirations range from family and colleagues, his grandmother Ellen Gilmore and Prionsais DeRossa, to internationally influential figures such as Martin Luther King. There are also some surprises, such as the 'Iron Lady' of British politics, Margaret Thatcher, musician Seán O'Riada and playwright Seán O'Casey spicing up the list."--Publisher's website
