Aldergrove priest makes headlines around the World

AN Aldergrove priest has made headlines around the world after his powerful homily at the funeral of murdered journalist Lyra McKee.

Fr Martin Magill received a standing ovation at St Anne’s Cathedral after he pleaded with politicians in the congregation to get together and have talks in her memory.

Fr Magill and Lyra became friends after the reporter contacted him to ask if he could help her with research for one of her books.
