One Good Day by David Donoghue


When George Mitchell described his time helping broker peace in Northern Ireland, he said, ‘We had 700 bad days – and then one good day, which changed the course of history.’

One Good Day is the fascinating insider account of those negotiations from diplomat David Donoghue, who was then Irish head of the Anglo-Irish Secretariat in Belfast. It explores the complex, delicate and often frustrating series of talks that drew the Troubles to an end.

April 2023 marks the 25-year anniversary of the Good Friday Agreement, hailed internationally as a near-miracle of collective collaboration, compromise and diplomacy.

One Good Day offers an absorbing perspective on the drama of the negotiations from someone who was right at the centre of the action, alongside all the key players such as Martin McGuinness, Gerry Adams, John Hume, Bill Clinton, Bertie Ahern and Mo Mowlam.


‘Incisive and compelling – an insider’s story of the negotiations which delivered the Good Friday Agreement.’ George Mitchell

‘A gripping account of how we achieved the agreement that changed Ireland for the better.’ Bertie Ahern

‘I’ve been reporting on matters linked to Ireland for forty years and I learned a lot from this fine book’ Tommie Gorman


David Donoghue was one of the Irish government’s negotiators for the Good Friday Agreement. He served as Irish Ambassador in Russia, Germany and Austria before being appointed Permanent Representative of Ireland to the UN in New York. He retired from the Irish foreign service in 2017, but remains active in these issues.
