“In recent times, Dr McGinley has been honoured for his tireless work in caring for those in need. He is a recipient of the Freedom of Derry City as well as a Papal knighthood in recognition of his selfless work in the Hospice.

“My thoughts are with his family and those involved in the Foyle Hospice at this time as they mourn his passing and celebrate all he has contributed to our city and the North West.”
