A Londonderry woman whose teenage sister died after an IRA shooting that took place on Martin McGuinness’ birthday exactly 44 years ago has said she’ll be mourning her and her murdered RUC father on what would have been the former Provisional leader’s 70th birthday on Saturday.

Republicans planned a series of celebrations to mark the ex-Deputy First Minister’s birthday on Saturday evening.

But Lorraine Sadler took to social media on Friday to condemn Mr McGuinness and his colleagues.
