Good Friday Agreement memo sells for €9,000

A MEMORANDUM from the final Good Friday Agreement signed by the participants has been sold at auction in Dublin for €9,000.

Featuring the signatures of Tony Blair, John Hume, Gerry Adams, Martin McGuinness, Marjorie "Mo" Mowlam and Bertie Ahern, the memorandum had been giving a guide price of between €3,000-5,000.

But fierce bidding from the UK and Ireland saw it eventually sold to a Belfast Art Gallery.

What went under the hammer at the weekend was a final memorandum issued by chairman of the talks, Senator George Mitchell, outlining what had been agreed, which was handed out to all the delegates.

"We were amazed at the interest," Auctioneer Ian Whyte, MD of Whyte's Auctioneers, said.
