This book, the only one on the Kerry Babies, as far as I am aware, had the opportunity to be an important observation on a particular time in Ireland, just before a cultural explosion was about to go off (later known as the Celtic Tiger).
It's author is a well respected journalist.
How she let herself down, in my view. While the basic facts of the Kerry Babies are there the book is like a pantomime, where any Irish MAN is the big bad wolf and any Irish WOMAN is the suppressed down trodden victim.
Of course if you are a feminist you are entitled to these views and I am certain that Irish society was a lot more like that then, and maybe still is a bit now.
If, though, you are writing a factual work as a serious journalist then the reader deserves a debate with rational and well presented differentials and arguments, not an virulent anti man rant.
