The late John Hume

The death of a great man and genuine peacemaker (as opposed to someone who just agreed to stop murdering other people) throws into perspective the petty sectarianism that continues to dog this place.

John Hume wasn't just a peacemaker - although it's for that he will rightly be most remembered.

He was also a man who understood what it was like to be poor and who worked to improve conditions and opportunities for working class people on both sides of our community.
