Riassunto: This book is written by two authors who know the Irish government intimately from within. The book describes the operation of government in practice and includes a great deal of information, much of which has not previously been published, about cabinet procedures, the appointment and responsibilities of Ministers, their political advisers and private offices, the election and work of TDs, the Whip's offices, the role of the Dail and proposed reforms. It outlines the provisions of the Constitution and discusses the function of the President. "Irish Government Today" provides an informative insight into the civil service and describes the powers and functions of local authorities and the operation of the health service. State-sponsored bodies are also examined. Other topics addressed include the appeals mechanisms, both formal and informal, the "representation" system, and parliamentary questions. The impact of the European Community on every aspect of the public service, together with the continuous attempts at reform, are explored.
About the Author: John O'Toole is the Head of External Relations and Partnerships at the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control. He lectures in several universities. Sean Dooney was Assistant Secretary in the Department of Agriculture and Food.
