The funeral of John Hume took place at St. Eugene’s Cathedral in Derry today, August 5th, 2020. “He attracted many of us into political life, knowing that we had to find political solutions and answers to deep seated injustices – and that cycles of revenge killings were not the answer….We will not quickly forget the role he played in providing a counterpoint to paramilitary violence, in opposing narrow minded bigotry and sectarianism, in championing cross community reconciliation and devolved government, and in giving politicians a good name.”
