WATCH: Lyra McKee’s funeral congregation stands in applause as priest asks why it’s taken her death for political leaders to come together

Fr. Martin Magill asked: “Why in God’s name does it take the death of a 29-year-old woman, with her whole life ahead of her, to get to this point?”

The Northern Irish journalist was shot dead while covering riots in Derry-Londonderry last Thursday night (April 18).

The ‘New IRA’ admitted responsibility for her murder, but said she was hit by mistake.
