Private Diary of a Suspended MLA 5.95

Garbhan Downey

When Shay Gallagher is elected as an independent assemblyman for North Derry, he thinks hes home in a gravy train. Forty grand a year (plus exies) and no work to go to for the foreseeable future what could possibly go wrong? Then his agent Tommy Bowtie has the bright idea of opening a constituency office. And before you can say: "Turn off that tape-recorder", Shay has fallen out with all four main parties, the boys in balaclavas, and just about every woman he knows including the feisty Tyrone MLA Sue McEwan. The parish priest Father Know-All, meanwhile, has made it his mission in life to get Shay married off; Emile the Spy wants him to take out a paramilitary cell; and Bite Me OBoyle is ringing from the police station looking for bail money. Indeed, a lesser man than Gallagher would pack it all in but then King Size Barkley wont hand over the negatives until he gets his big grant from Tony Blair...

The Private Diary of a Suspended MLA is a record of one mans heroic struggle to survive the great Stormont lockout. Follow Shay Gallagher as he battles his way through TV debates with political giants, drinking sessions with political pygmies, and a no-holds-barred football match, which could settle, once and for all, the great Derry-Londonderry name-change debate...
