More than 100 people gathered in Belfast last night for the launch of Seamus Mallon's first book 'A Shared Home Place'.

Co-authored by veteran journalist Andy Pollak, the book traces the former first minister and SDLP deputy leader's rise in politics and outlines his blueprint for moving towards a united Ireland.
