Biography

Eoin O'Malley is an Associate Professor (senior lecturer in old money) in political science at the School of Law and Government, Dublin City University. There he teaches politics and public policy and is the Director of the MSc. in Public Policy. He has authored over forty articles in peer-review journals. His research is mainly on Irish politics and particularly on the position of the Taoiseach and cabinet government in Ireland, though he also does work on the Irish party system, media coverage of Irish elections and public policy. He recently conducted research which included experiments on the impact of information on opinion change. His latest work is on policy success and policy failure in Ireland.

Eoin wrote a textbook, Contemporary Ireland (Palgrave Macmillan 2011), and co-edited three other books on Irish politics. The most recent book (co-edited with Sean McGraw, Notre Dame) is due out in November: One Party Dominance: Fianna Fáil and Irish Politics, 1926-2016 (Routledge 2017).  He is a former co-editor of Irish Political Studies. As a regular columnist in the Sunday Independent Eoin is a frequent contributor to national debates.
