IUNVA  |  Honouring Caring Remembering


John Wade is Secretary of IUNVA Post 2 here in Kerry. Post 2 of the Irish United Nations Veterans Association were proud to have John, who hails from the Creggan Estate in Derry but is resident in Listowel, travel to attend the funeral of John Hume in his hometown.

John met with Pat Hume and the grieving family and offered them the sincere condolences of the Irish United Nations Veterans Association.

He told Pat - "The Irish United Nations Veterans Association offer you our sincerest condolences. We were Peacekeepers and John was a Peacemaker".

This was gratefully acknowledged by Mrs. Hume who was a great strength behind John Hume's determination to bring peace to the island despite the verbal snipers.

When the hearse and family cars turned out from St. Eugene's Cathedral to bring John on his final journey to the City Cemetery, John Wade stood on the roadside of Creggan Hill and saluted the passing hearse, and family cars, whilst all around people loudly applauded.
