Taoiseach Micheal Martin unveiled a bust in honour of former Derry political giant John Hume at the European Parliament in Strasbourg this week, where he was joined by the President of the European Parliament, Roberta Metsola, and John Hume's son, John Jnr.
This is the third bust of Mr Hume to be unveiled, with the previous two unveiled at the Irish embassies in Washington and London, while the fourth is expected to be installed at the Irish government's Department of Foreign Affairs in Iveagh House, Dublin later this year.
The bust, which was donated to the parliament by the Irish Government, marks the contribution the Derry Nobel Peace Prize winner made during his 25 years as an MEP, and the inspiration he took from the European project in his work.
Dublin-based sculptor, Elizabeth O'Kane, was commissioned to create the bronze portrait bust and has worked closely with the family in creating the bronze bust, which represents Mr Hume when he was 40 - the age when he became a member of the European Parliament.
