Belfast’s Dome of Delight: City Hall Politics 1981-2000
In this political memoir, Máirtín Ó Muilleoir provides a witty and at times tragic account of Unionist opposition to the growth of Nationalist and Republican politics within Belfast City Hall. As the ‘novice ambassador from the independent republic of Andersonstown’, Ó Muilleoir’s first experience as an elected representative involved forceable removal from the Council chamber by the RUC, after attempting to make his first speech in Irish – the ‘leprechaun language’ as Sammy Wilson labelled it.
