Charles Haughey was an Irish Fianna Fáil politician who served as Taoiseach from1979 to 1981, March 1982 to December 1982, and 1987 to 1992.  

Over his long and controversial career, the question of Northern Ireland was central to his thinking about public life. His biographer, Professor Gary Murphy,  will assess his changing attitudes to "the fourth green field."
