Apol­ogy summed up Hume’s grace

There’ll be peo­ple pay­ing trib­ute to John Hume to­day who ex­co­ri­ated him when he be­gan his talks with Gerry Adams out of which, ul­ti­mately, came the whole peace process.

I was in such com­pany with John in Le­in­ster House when he, un­der­stand­ably, got very an­noyed. The fol­low­ing day he rang me at my home in Cork to apol­o­gise for his an­noy­ance. Sums up the man.
