Deputy First Minister Martin McGuinness is attending the state funeral today of former Taoiseach, Albert Reynolds.

Commenting on his legacy, Mr McGuinness said,

"Albert Reynolds played a critically important role in building the embryonic peace process in Ireland. 

"His decision to open up direct dialogue with Sinn Féin was a crucially important development which led ultimately to all-party negotiations and agreement. 

"His courage in initiating political dialogue as an alternative to conflict is a model that should be followed across the world."
