A large crowd of mourners has gathered in west Belfast for the funeral service of veteran republican Bobby Storey. The former leading IRA member died earlier this month at the age of 64 following an unsuccessful lung transplant. Sinn Fein president Mary Lou McDonald, vice president Michelle O’Neill and former president Gerry Adams were among hundreds in the Andersonstown Road area on Tuesday morning as the cortege left Mr Storey’s home and travelled to St Agnes’ church.
