 Garret FitzGerald - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
FitzGerald's mother, the former Mabel McConville, who, although an ardent nationalist and republican herself, came of Ulster unionist Protestant stock and left a lasting affect on her son's political philosophy.
FitzGerald declined, choosing instead to follow in his father's footsteps by joining the rival Fine Gael party where he was hugely influenced by the ideas of the TD, Declan Costello.
FitzGerald was elected to Dáil Éireann in 1969, the same year he obtained his PhD for a thesis later published under the title "Planning in Ireland." He became an important figure almost immediately in the parliamentary party and his liberal ideas were seen as a counterweight to the conservative leader, Liam Cosgrave.

Garret FitzGerald: First of all, it would appear to me that the Minister holds that the Cork Co-operative Mart is not carrying on its business, which is the business of selling livestock by auction, at the place where they hold their board meetings.
Garret FitzGerald: If the business of Cork Co-operative Mart is the business of selling livestock by auction and if they are carrying on their business vis-á-vis the business of selling livestock by auction where the board meets, then the place where the board meets must be licensed.

Garret FitzGerald: Of course, there would be a dispute, but at least under my amendment it is clear that the criterion for settlement of a dispute would be the interest of the employee.

Garret FitzGerald, a highly regarded medical doctor at the University of Pennsylvania, told a conference in Edinburgh, Scotland that the problems surrounding the Vioxx recall in the U.S. could happen, again, with a different unsafe drug unless the FDA makes some fundamental changes.

FitzGerald told the Edinburgh audience that he is hopeful that systemic improvements will be made at the FDA insofar that drug safety issues are now being given more priority at the federal agency since the Vioxx recall.

 Penn Researchers Add More Evidence to Demonstrate Role of COX Inhibitors in Heart-Disease Risk   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Six years ago Garret FitzGerald, MD, Director of the Institute for Translational Medicine and Therapeutics at Penn, raised the possibility that selective COX-2 inhibitors might predispose patients otherwise at risk for an increased incidence of heart attack and stroke.
In this first study, the researchers used a conventional statistical approach called meta-analysis to combine the findings of two trials to obtain a stronger estimate of the risk of heart attack plus stroke than is possible from looking at either trial alone.
FitzGerald adds: “The clear emergence of a cardiovascular hazard from COX-2 inhibitors in patients, the weak rationale for a study of their protective properties in the first instance, and now this evidence from mice would indicate to me that a trial in high-risk patients, such as that proposed for Celebrex is, at best, ill advised.”
