TheMoreThe Eighty-Five Billion Euro Manis a hard-hitting satire of Irelands EU IMF bailout and the Eurozone crisis by former Irish Times London Correspondent Donal Conaty.

It takes a scathing swipe at the people untouched by austerity Ireland. The politicians, the senior civil servants, the bankers and the trade union officials.Walk into the Department of Finance in Dublin with €85 billion and you wont have it for long. Not when Dermot Mulhearn a career civil servant with a taste for the finer things in life is wondering where his next meal ticket is coming from.As Ireland is rocked by the EU IMF bailout conditions and the austerity measures that follow it Dermot still has a twinkle in his eye.

Why should he care about the Irish banking crisis? Hes the man who pulls the strings on Irelands puppet politicians. So what if Brian Cowens government is all washed up? Dermot is more than a match for the incoming glimmer twins Michael Noonan and Brendan Howlin. As for Enda Kenny? The new Taoiseach couldnt go a day without asking Dermot for advice.So, as the economy continues to nosedive and the grim realities of austerity in bailout Ireland become apparent Dermot leads a charmed life. He accepts tributes from bankers as though he were Don Corleone in The Godfather and he steers the ship of State wherever he feels like going.So what if Ireland defaults?

Angela Merkel can deal with the consequences. Dermot  has more pressing concerns like distributing Six Nations tickets to his buddies or sourcing nurofen plus and in-flight magazines for a bizarre wake in memory of Leslie Nielsen.Stuck with trying to manage Irelands bailout fund and prevent Dermot from blowing it on fast cars, wild parties and fake tans is an anonymous accountant with the IMF. This is his harrowing tale. It would be serious if it wasnt so funny.Praise for The Eighty-Five Billion Euro Man:Its very good - Miriam OCallaghan, RTÉ Prime Time presentersuperb satire, even the true bits - Brian M Lucey, Professor of Finance, Trinity College Dublin
