This title is a devastating new expose from the bestselling authors of "The Bankers" and "Wasters". In March 2011, the Irish people elected a new government. But how much had really changed? In "The Untouchables", Shane Ross and Nick Webb shine a light into dark corners of official Ireland to show that the blame for running the country into the ground goes well beyond Fianna Fail, and that a dismaying number of the people who should share the blame are still in situ: in the civil service, on the boards of the leading companies, and in the banks, law firms, and consultancies that carry so much influence in deciding who wins and who loses. They name names, trace connections, and show how the untouchables managed to do so much damage, how they got away with it, and how so many of them are still in positions of power and influence in Ireland. "Fascinating ...required reading for anyone interested in how crony capitalism and power work in practice in Ireland". ("Irish Times"). ""The Untouchables" is hard to put down. Read it and seethe". ("Irish Independent"). Shane Ross is an independent TD for Dublin South, and columnist in the "Sunday Independent". Nick Webb is business editor of the "Sunday Independent". They are the authors of "Wasters", 2010's top-selling Irish current affairs title.
