Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams has welcomed the Taoiseach’s support for the demand of the Ballymurphy Massacre Families’ for an independent panel of investigation in to the circumstances of the deaths of their loved ones.

Speaking this afternoon after the families met with the Taoiseach Deputy Adams said;

“I want to commend the families for their determination and their long campaign for justice. Today’s commitment from the Taoiseach is a significant development in the campaign.

“I welcome this commitment from Enda Kenny and I urge him to act upon it by talking to his British counterpart and urging him to make a similar commitment.

“The onus is very much on the British Government to give these families the closure they deserve and which they have been denied for over 40 years.”
