Adams responds to Taoiseach’s remarks
Responding this evening to remarks by the Taoiseach Enda Kenny Gerry Adams said:
"In comments today, the Taoiseach suggested that my recent blog was 'part of an attempt to discredit' Maria Cahill.
"The Taoiseach is entirely wrong and his remarks are mischievous and clearly politically motivated.
"The blog was a sincere effort to deal directly with the issue of how allegations of abuse had been handled in the past by republicans. The Taoiseach should not try to score cheap political points about these sensitive and serious issues.
"The Taoiseach also said in relation to people who have suffered abuse in the past that he understood more ‘there are more to follow’.
"Abuse of any kind is totally wrong. If anyone, including the Taoiseach has any information whatsoever about any child abuse, they should give that to the appropriate authorities North or South and they will have the full support of Sinn Féin in doing this."
