Book Of Condolences To Be Opened In Derry Today For The Widow Of Former SDLP Leader John Hume

A book of condolences is to be opened in Derry today for the widow of former SDLP leader John Hume.

83-year-old Pat Hume died yesterday – just over a year after her husband passed away.

Former US secretary of state, Hilary Clinton, says she was a key part of the North’s peace process.

Bishop of Derry, Donal McKeown, has also been paying tribute to her:

In many ways what we’re seeing today is the end of a wonderful couple. Because it was as a couple, that, somehow, rather they were more than the sum of their individual parts. They weren’t just two people walking in parallel.”
