Sinn Féin MLA Martin McGuinness has paid tribute to Father Gerry Reynolds who died today. Fr. Gerry Reynolds was based at Clonard Monastery in west Belfast and played a significant role in developing the peace process.

Martin McGuinness said: “I was deeply saddened to learn of the death of Father Gerry Reynolds.

“He was a gentle peacemaker, a man of great humility and selflessness who did incredible work along with Fr Alec Reid in Clonard Monastery and with peacemakers from the Protestant Churches to help bring about a transformation in our society.

“We owe them all a debt of gratitude and I would like to extend my sincerest condolences to Fr Gerry’s family, and to his colleagues in the Redemptorist Order.”
