Lemass book gets blessing of 'Fr Jack'

ACTOR Frank Kelly launched The Other Lemass, a new biography of Sean Lemass by UCD academic Bryce Evans in the Mansion House, Dublin last Wednesday night.

The revisionist book looks at the "dark side" of the creator of modern Ireland and challenges popular beliefs about his role as Dev's successor. The book, published by Collins Press, contains many cartoons from the periodical Dublin Opinion by Charles E Kelly, father of Frank Kelly.
