In this compilation of Irish political quotations, we come face-to-face with the good, the bad and the ugly of Irish political life. Using the words of those in the trenches, and spanning decades of Irish politics, we chart the sometimes glorious but always eventful history of Irish politics.
Covering everything from addresses to the nation, diplomatic incidents, and political gaffes to insults, state scandals, and the rise and fall of our best-known politicians, here is the very best and the very worst of Irish politics.
Whatever your political tendencies, I'm Glad You Asked Me That will raise a smile - and a grimace - as Irish politicians and well-known political pundits bare all.
