For Your Consideration


In the Name of Peace: John Hume in America

Narrated by Liam Neeson with an original musical score by Bill Whelan.

This 90-minute documentary by Maurice Fitzpatrick tells of how John Hume cultivated the support of a succession of US presidents to help forge peace in Northern Ireland and why Bill Clinton (top right) called him the ‘Martin Luther King of Northern Ireland politics”.

This November 17, In the Name of Peace: John Hume in America will be released in select IMC Cinemas nationwide (Dublin Savoy, IMC Tallaght, IMC Santry, IMC Dun Laoghaire, IMC Athlone, IMC Carlow, IMC Dundalk, IMC Galway, IMC Ballymena, IMC Enniskillen and IMC Omagh).

    Does it bother anybody else that McGuinness and Paisley get all the credit for the peace process after Hume and Trimble doing all the spade-work?

      In any situation where you’ve a peace process, it’s a sad inevitability that the lads who come in from the cold will get far more kudos than the folk who held the door open in the first instance.

      Not really. We all know who really did the leg work. John Hume’s selflessness will never be forgotten.
