Enda the Road: Gavan Reilly's book on Kenny's last nine days as taoiseach

By many measures Enda Kenny was Fine Gael’s most successful leader of all time, but his position as taoiseach was thrown into turmoil in February 2017 by an explosive political scandal – one which threatened to collapse his government, and ultimately cost Kenny his job. In Enda the Road: Nine Days That Toppled a Taoiseach, Gavan Reilly offers an enthralling blow-by-blow account of the Maurice McCabe scandal: how a Garda whistle-blower was targeted by a national smear campaign, and how the government’s botched response led to a fatal loss of trust in its leader.
Compiled through exhaustive research and interviews with dozens of key figures and witnesses, Enda the Road is the ultimate account of a nine-day political hurricane whirlwind that brought down a taoiseach.
