Sinn Féin Leader Gerry Adams TD has welcomed the broadcast yesterday evening of an apology to him by RTE’s Drivetime programme.
Gerry Adams said:
“On 7th October, RTÉ’S Drivetime broadcast an inaccurate report about me.
“Despite several phone calls to RTÉ by the Sinn Fein Press Office, this inaccurate report was repeated on several subsequent news bulletins.
“I am happy that RTÉ has now apologised for this inaccurate report which was damaging to me and upsetting for my family.”
