I think he was one of our best, and he was certainly always worth reading all the way up until his death.

That said, I'd have to disagree that he was overtaxed with 'political savvy'- maybe it was the most common criticism of his tenure as Taoiseach.

Ireland's troubles and political failings can be encapsulated in microcosm in the people's preference for Haughey over Garrett. The wrong road taken.
