Turner's Taoiseach: Martyn Turner

Author: Martyn Turner
€2.50
Martyn Turner made his way from Essex to Co. Kildare via Belfast in the 1970s. When he landed among us, Jack Lynch was Taoiseach, soon to be followed by Liam Cosgrave, then Jack again – then the Napoleon of Kinsealy. And so on up to Enda Kenny. Turner has drawn them all – all nine men (alas, no women) who have been head of government on his watch. In Turner’s Taoisigh, he reproduces representative samples of his work on each – aggregating to more than a hundred brilliant cartoons – together with a commentary (all his own work) on the technical problems each man presented for the struggling cartoonist.
