Adams offers sympathy and condolences to the family of Paddy ‘Bogside’ Doherty
Speaking following the news of the death of Paddy ‘Bogside’ Doherty in Derry, Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams TD said;
“Paddy Bogside, as he was known to all, was a powerful advocate for civil rights and for the people of Derry.
“Activism for civil rights and equality were constants in his life, from facing down Unionist discrimination on the streets to pioneering employment and regeneration schemes across Derry.
“My thoughts are with his wife Eileen, and extended family who have lost a father, husband, and grandfather, as well as the people of Derry who have lost a true friend.”
