RIP John Hume


It is with deep sadness that the Laois Council acknowledges the passing of John Hume, former leader of the SDLP. We would like to extend our heartfelt sympathies at this time to his family, particularly his wife, Pat and to acknowledge the crucial role John played in bringing peace to the island of Ireland.

Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam dílis
