Snouts in the Trough Summary


Snouts in the Trough by Ken Foxe

From the salubrious offices of John O'Donoghue, the former Ceann Comhairle, to Senator Ivor Callely's long commute to work, award-winning journalist Ken Foxe provides an irresistible read.

This is an eye-opening glimpse into the world of unearned privilege, unreasonable expectation and gross extravagance that characterises our political and administrative elite. Yes, the same geniuses who have overseen our slide towards disaster.

`A damning dissection of a culture of excess and entitlement'

Fintan O'Toole, The Irish Times

`Foxe's level of detail on individual expense claims is praiseworthy and is sure to succeed in angering many readers'

David Clerkin, Sunday Business Post

RTE `Liveline' Non-Fiction Book of the Year 2010
