StoryCast '21: EP 11/21 The Last Gun: Disarming the IRA


In September 2005, the responsibility of securing a lasting peace in Northern Ireland fell on the shoulders of two unlikely men - a Protestant minister and a Catholic priest.
Unbeknown to high-ranking security officials in both the British and Irish Governments, the Rev Harold Good and Father Alec Reid were to undertake a secret mission to bring about the disarmament of the IRA.
To this day, what happened before and during that covert mission, remains shrouded in mystery. But now aged 84, Reverend Harold Good, speaking exclusively to Sky News, gives a searing new insight into an act that not only involved great personal risk, but on which the future of peace depended.


‘The Last Gun: Disarming the IRA’ was written and produced by Rob Mulhern with David Blevins.
