Product Description

Product Description

Dr Billy Leonard brings a wealth of personal and political experiences to bear on his subject of a united Ireland. His journey from unionism, including a period in the part-time Royal Ulster Constabulary Reserve, to republicanism, including his time as an elected representative, help make this a unique book. The author lifts the topic away from the mere aspirational call to outlining the political work that needs to be done. It is constantly punctuated with personal recollections and strong recommendations. Whatever your opinion on Irish unity this book makes a major contribution.

5.0 out of 5 stars Overdue and Indispensable 18 July 2012
Format:Paperback
This book is a must-read for anyone who has an opinion at all on the prospect of a united Ireland, from whatever political perspective and none. Dr Leonard has travelled something of a unique personal and political path through life, and it is these same experiences that lend so much considerable weight to his deliberations on the desirability (as he would see it) of a reunited Ireland, though these considerations are firmly grounded in reality as a result of his not inconsiderable council chamber and legislature journeys. Overall this work will prove to have been a very valuable contributor to the debate, of that I would have no doubt.

4.0 out of 5 stars A decent read 2 Feb 2014
By Matt
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Billy Leonard. From Unionist background, RUC and Orange order to joining the Provisional movement. A very brave man indeed and for standing up for his beliefs. His arguments are correct, NI cannot sustain itself within the current context in which the 6 counties currently exist. It is worth a place in your personal library.
