.
Tens of thousands lined the streets of McGuinness' native #Bogside district of Derry as Sinn Fein party colleagues, IRA veterans, family members and lifelong friends took turns carrying his Irish flag-draped casket from the #MartinMcGuinness home to the gates of the city's oldest Catholic church.
.
The sea of mournful faces represented the greatest show of Irish republican grief since the 1981 funeral for IRA hunger strike leader Bobby Sands, whose election to British Parliament inspired #SinnFein to start contesting elections in an early step toward peace.

.
