The funeral mass of John Hume has heard how he made peace visible when others had given up hope.

The Nobel Peace Prize winner has been laid to rest in his native Derry City.

A message read on behalf of the Dalai Lama said his persistence for peace has set an example for all of us to follow.


Clare County Council has today opened an online Book of Condolence in his memory.

The Mayor of Clare, Councillor Mary Howard, is inviting members of the public to sign the book and join people from all over Ireland and beyond in marking the former SDLP leader’s legacy.
