The former SDLP leader, long-time Foyle MP and MEP died on August 3, 2020, at Owen Mor care home on Derry’s Culmore Road.
He was aged 83.
He had been suffering from dementia for a number of years.
Mr Hume’s death led to a huge outpouring of grief and sadness who had been one of the chief architects of the peace process.
Many tributes were paid to him from political leaders across the world, including former US President Bill Clinton.
Due to the Covid pandemic, Mr Hume’s funeral was on a much smaller scale than would have been expected for such a hugely influential figure.
Mr Hume, who was named as the ‘Greatest Ever Irish Person’ in an RTE poll several years ago, was laid to rest in the City Cemetery, following a service in St Eugene’s Cathedral which was attended by his family and a small number of invited guests.
St Eugene’s will tomorrow also be the setting for the first anniversary Mass in memory of Mr Hume.
Similar to his funeral last August, Mr Hume’s family will keep events to mark his first anniversary very low key.
Following the former SDLP leader’s death, a foundation was set up in his honour.
The John and Pat Hume Foundation, which also recognises the key role played by Pat Hume in supporting her husband’s work, aims to support and inspire peace initiatives throughout the world.
Since its creation last year, the foundation has hosted a number of events, mostly online due to the pandemic.
