PRIME MINISTER GARRET FITZGERALD
The Irish Prime Minister and newspaper columnist signs this black and white 6½x8½ photo of himself
Photograph signed: "Garret FitzGerald" in black ink. 6½x8½. Garret FitzGerald (1926-2011) was Taoiseach (Prime Minister) of Ireland from 1981-1982 and 1982-1987. He was the son of Desmond FitzGerald, the first Minister for External Affairs of the Irish Free State following independence in 1922. FitzGerald made his entry into party politics under the banner of Fine Gael, Ireland's middle-right political party. He was elected to Seanad Éireann by the Industrial and Commercial Panel in 1965 and soon built up his political profile. FitzGerald was elected Taoiseach on 30 June 1981 and then again in 1982 when he served in that position until 1987. As Taoiseach for a second time FitzGerald advocated a liberalization of Irish society, to create what he called the non-sectarian nation of "Tone and Davis". His attempt to introduce divorce was defeated in a referendum, although he did liberalize Ireland's contraception laws. After retiring from his political position FitzGerald wrote a weekly column every Saturday in The Irish Times, and lectured widely at home and abroad on public affairs. Corners rounded. Slight wear near upper right corner. Otherwise, fine condition.
