The Museum of Free Derry said: "Along with the rest of Derry we are sad at the death of Bishop Mehaffey and send our best wishes to his family and friends. His contribution to truth seeking, reconciliation and justice can never be exaggerated."

The City Centre Initiative said: "Bishop James was a man who dearly loved his adopted city. He worked tirelessly on reconciliation and regeneration. Although he came from Co. Armagh he was always so proud to call Derry~Londonderry his home. Condolences to Thelma, Wendy, Tim and the wider Mehaffey family."
