'Fascinating' - Eamon Dunphy 'Meticulously researched' - Sunday Independent 'A wonderful account of the special relationships between Ireland and the USA' Bertie Ahern The links between Ireland and US presidents extend much further and deeper than JFK: from Andrew Jackson in 1829 to Woodrow Wilson in 1913 and Joe Biden in 2021, Ireland's sway in the White House is hugely significant. Spanning the centuries, from the American Revolution to the birth of the Irish Republic and JFK's heady glamour, The Green and White House takes in political machinations and the firebrands who pushed for freedom, justice and peace for Ireland. For centuries, Irish emigrants crossed the Atlantic by boat, but an intense diplomatic bromance has seen American commanders-in-chief returning to remote Irish villages via Air Force One and armoured limousines. Each homecoming turns local people into international media darlings, but this transatlantic courtship has secured Ireland an annual invite to the White House - something no other nation can rival. The Green And White House takes a wry look at the special relationship one tiny nation shares with the world's greatest superpower.
