Former Longford-Westmeath TD Mary O’Rourke will be signing copies of her book, Just Mary, in Eason’s store, Longford this Friday, at 4pm.

The Athlone native has penned what’s described as a frank, newsworthy and fun political memoir, looking back on her time in public office.

She writes of personal and political events; of her family background and her early involvement in politics: of the many senior political figures to whom she was close, especially Charles Haughey and Bertie Ahern; of her two beloved Brians, her brother and nephew, both of whom died before their time; of her successes and disappointments.
