John Hume’s remains will be taken to St Eugene’s Cathedral in Derry at 5pm with a funeral mass on Wednesday at 11.30am. Attendance at both will be in line with current Covid-19 restrictions with strictly limited numbers.
The Hume family said:
“We realise this will mean that many will be unable to join us and we will arrange a memorial service and a celebration of his life in due course. Above all, we know that John would have prioritised public health, and the safety and health of our communities.”
