A revealing interview with the late Martin McGuinness which was conducted in 2015 aired tonight.

Mr McGuinness, 66, died during the night at Derry's Altnagelvin Hospital with his family by his bedside.

To mark his death, "Martin McGuinness: The Interview" will air on TV3 tonight at 9pm.

In the interview, Mr McGuinness speaks candidly about his IRA past, the conflicts it caused with his Catholic faith and parents, and his role in the peace process.
