Sinn Féin - On Your Side

Adams appeals for ‘sensitivity and discretion’ on Milltown

24 February, 2009 - by Pat Sheehan


Sinn Féin West Belfast MP Gerry Adams has expressed his hope that issues around bereaved families and Milltown cemetery can be resolved as quickly.

Sinn Féin representatives have been meeting with the families and with the other agencies involved, including the PSNI, Ulster Wildlife Trust and the Catholic Church, on this matter in recent days and months.

Mr. Adams said:

"Following a completion of a recent survey by Queens University we fully expect that it will be possible in the near future to resolve all of the concerns raised by bereaved families.

"We are aware that the survey has identified an issue around a small piece of ground which the PSNI wish to investigate further.

"We hope that this work can be completed quickly with sensitivity and discretion."
