After ten days of national mourning South Africa finally laid to rest its first post apartheid black president, Nelson Mandela. The ceremony took place in the town of Qunu and 'in keeping with tradition, Mandela was laid to rest in the afternoon, when the sun is at its highest.'
Amongst the mourners from Ireland was the President of Sinn Fein, Gerry Adams.
