25 June, 2015 - by Gerry Adams TD


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.

Earlier today it was thought that the remains recovered where those of Joe Lynsky. Now it appears that they might be those of Seamus Wright and Kevin McKee.

Commenting on developments Gerry Adams said:

“I welcome the discovery by the Commission of remains in county Meath. The uncertainty over who has been recovered must be hugely traumatic for the families involved. I am sure that the Commission will move as speedily as it can to verify the identity of those who have been found.

“I thank everyone who has helped in the search of the remains of those who were killed and secretly buried by the IRA. Republicans have co-operated fully with the Commission and we now need to continue to do our utmost to bring closure for the remaining families.

“Today’s discovery is an important step toward the recovery of all of those killed and secretly buried.

“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.”
