    Politics is the gentle art of getting votes from the poor and campaign funds from the rich, by promising to protect each from the other. ~Oscar Ameringer

    Gerry Adams speaking at the graveside....

    Quote.. He said Mr McGuinness "was not a terrorist" but a "freedom fighter".
    "He was also a political prisoner, a negotiator, a peacemaker, a healer," he said.
    He also appealed to unionists.
    "Let us learn to like each other, to be friends, to celebrate and enjoy our differences and to do so on the basis of common sense, respect and tolerance for each other and everyone else - as equals," he said.
    "Let me appeal also to nationalists and republicans - do nothing to disrespect our unionist neighbours or anyone else."
    Folk singer Christy Moore sang the final song - the Time has Come - at the graveside. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-northern-ireland-39368451
