A book of condolences has opened at Aras Chill Dara following the death of the former deputy First Minister of Northern Ireland, Martin McGuinness.

The cause of death was amyloidosis, a very rare genetic disease which affects the heart, and which is thought to be more prevalent in Donegal people. Mr McGuinness was 66 years old.

The book opening in the foyer of Áras Cill Dara in the past half hour and is set to stay over over the weekend.
