Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams TD has welcomed news that the Independent Commission for the Location of Victims’ Remains has recovered human remains in County Meath which are believed to be those of Belfast man Joe Lynskey.

Gerry Adams said:

“I welcome this news. I hope the identity of the remains can be quickly verified and that this discovery will bring some closure to the family and loved ones of Joe Lynskey.

“This is the 11th set of remains recovered since the Commission was established.

“I want to appeal again for anyone with any information on those remains still not found to bring that information forward to the families, to the Commission or myself.

“Any information passed to the Commission cannot be used in a court of law or transmitted to any other agency and those passing on this information have absolute immunity in relation to this information.”
