Via the Sunday Miscellany archives, we present a tribute to Pat Hume, wife of John Hume, who has died following a short illness, illuminating the bravery and tenacity of this extraordinary couple. Listen to Phenomenal Grace by Susan McKay above.
This tribute to Pat Hume by writer Susan McKay was recorded in 2018 as part of a special Sunday Miscellany programme in the Playhouse, Derry, marking 50 years of the Civil Rights movement, and Pat Hume was there in the audience to hear it. Susan's tribute was followed by a performance of The Coolin – Pat’s favourite song – by fiddler Clodagh Warnock. You can hear the full programme here.
