in Inside Accounts, Volume II


This book would not exist without the patience and help of those interviewed. I want to thank each individual for accommodating my persistent and, no doubt, annoying requests for interviews and for the candid and open way in which each volunteered information and recollections about efforts to achieve a peace settlement in Northern Ireland. Each person was interviewed at least three times before their testimony was edited down into one single interview. Apart from the interviewees I want to thank Lord John Alderdice, Joe Brosnan, Sir John Chilcot, David Cooke, Paul Dixon, Aaron Edwards, Lincoln Geraghty, John Grieve, Sue Harper, the late Maurice Hayes, Chris Hudson, Chris Maccabe, Seamus Mallon, Jim McAuley, Van Norris, Connal Parr, Kevin Smith, Pip Sutton, Sir Quentin Thomas, Lord David Trimble, and particularly Lynn Evans. Lastly, I am grateful to Irish Political Studies for allowing me to use a shortened version of the Bertie Ahern interview published in 2017. The book, though, is dedicated to my late friend and mentor, Keith Tester, who died in 2019.
