THOUSANDS TO ATTEND MCGUINNESS FUNERAL IN DERRY

Thousands of people have gathered in Derry for the funeral of Martin McGuinness.

The former IRA commander turned peacemaker will be laid to rest following mass at St Columba’s church in the Bogside.

Former US President Bill Clinton is among those who’ll pay their respects – while DUP Leader Arlene Foster’s decision to attend is being seen as a landmark moment.

Mass will be led by Fr Michael Canny at 2 o’clock – and it’s been confirmed there will be no paramilitary trappings.

SF president Gerry Adams will deliver a graveside oration at the City Cemetery.
