A special live-streamed event is set to mark what would have been Martin McGuinness' 70th birthday this Saturday, May 23 – with appearances from Christy Moore, Damien Dempsey, Matt Molloy, Mary Lou McDonald, Gerry Adams, Michelle O'Neill, Cara McGuinness and more.

Since his death, his family, friends and former colleagues have participated in the charity Chieftains Walk in his memory. This year's walk, scheduled for March 29, was cancelled due to the ongoing Covid-19 crisis.
