Galway Bay fm newsroom - A book of condolence for Martin McGuinness will be opened at City Hall this morning (24/3).
Hillary and I were saddened to learn of the death of Martin McGuinness, who devoted his life to his beloved Northern Ireland. "Some of the reasons were principled, some were practical, but he decided".
The funeral of the former Deputy First Minister is set to take place in Derry today.
"He risked the wrath of his comrades and the rejection of his adversaries", Mr Clinton said at Mr McGuinness's funeral.
Arlene Foster, whose father was shot by the IRA, was applauded as she arrived with fellow DUP MLA Simon Hamilton, to take her seat.
"Martin believed in freedom and equality".
Newspapers in London today poured scorn on Clinton for turning up to pay respect to the man who oversaw a brutal regime of knee-cappings and executions in Britain and Northern Ireland.
As it happens, my own sympathies during the Troubles were with the likes of nationalists like Gerry Fitt and John Hume, rather than with full blooded Republicans; contemporary Sinn Fein, in its current feminist, green, anti-clerical, anti-austerity manifestation is, as far as I'm concerned, even less attractive than the old republican version. "I was brought up to say you don't speak ill of the dead and I would bear that in mind".
Kmart, Sears face 'substantial doubt' about finances as losses grow
At this point, the stores are doing all they can to stay afloat but have expressed "substantial doubt" about chances of survival. Continual operating losses could also restrict its access to funds under its credit agreement, said the filing.
"During this hard time, my thoughts go out to his wife Bernie and the entire McGuinness family".
But what I found repellent about much of the coverage of Martin McGuinness in the Mail et al was the entire failure to put his career in context.
"He grew up at a time of rage and resentment not only in Ireland but across the world and it was pronounced here".
"I first met Martin more than twenty years ago during his first visit to the United States, though I knew of and admired him long before that visit".
His contribution to the province, first as a harbinger of violence but ultimately as peacemaker, was the theme of Father Michael Canny's homily, as he led the mass.
She said he was a friend of the Palestinian people who spent his life defending Palestinian rights. "Martin McGuinness was a freedom fighter".
"May Martin rest in the peace that he pursued in life, and may his example inspire others to pursue a path of reconciliation".
