Never Give Up gives a thought-provoking insight into the public and private life of Gerry Adams, and provides an in-depth look at the ardently held beliefs of Ireland’s best-known politician. The book reveals Gerry’s thoughts on the Irish peace process and Brexit. It also recounts his experiences attending historic events such as the inauguration of Barack Obama and the funerals of Nelson Mandela and Fidel Castro. We get a glimpse into Gerry’s passions, including his love for the Antrim GAA teams, nature and his dogs. Turbulent times are also explored, like his move from West Belfast to Co. Louth in order to run for a seat in the Dáil, and the loss of his close friend and political ally, Martin McGuinness.
With chapters ranging from Justice for all, to A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Dáil Today to A New Ireland, the book takes the reader on a fascinating journey from serious to whimsical and back again.
