Mr Brokenshire commented:

I was very saddened to learn of the death of Bishop Edward Daly earlier this morning.

Throughout his long career, he witnessed at first hand many tragedies of the Northern Ireland troubles, but his priority was always to his parishioners, and he was a constant champion of the people of the North West.

He was an iconic figure in civic life, and he will long be remembered as a cleric who worked tirelessly to promote peace for all.

I extend my sincere condolences to his entire family circle.
