As the cliche correctly put it :-
His fingerprints are all over the Good Friday agreement. Especially he bit about putting it to a Referendum so SF and Republicans could move on from the 1918 election.
Certainly the top Irish person of the last half of the 20th Century.
I'm a great admirer of James Connolly, but nobody in the first half of the 20th century touches Hume

He towers over Pearse, Collins and De Valera as an admirable historical figure

Why?
I wake up in the morning and I piss excellence

Why?
For a start he wasn't a fanatical devotee of "blood sacrifice", he didn't believe in killing people, or deliberately creating martyrs

He was selfless and didn't care one whit about self glorification, he cared about the real lives of other people and how to make them better, no matter their background

Ireland's MLK

We can hold both thoughts concurrently:
Erick Morillo left an undelible mark on house music; his death is tragic & premature.

Also, Erick Morillo was out on bail after being arrested for sexually assaulting another DJ last year.

His legacy is complicated but loss is still loss.
