Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams TD has commented on the case of Brian Stack.

Speaking from Havana today, Deputy Adams said;

"I met the Stack family in 2013 at their request. I extended my sympathy to them and I said that the killing of Brian Stack was wrong.

“I did my utmost to assist them.

“I responded extensively to this issue when it was raised during the election campaign. In the course of our conversations I was given a number of names by Austin Stack which he told me he had been given by journalistic and Garda sources.

“Austin asked me to ask those named if they would meet with him. I did this with those I could contact. They declined to meet at that time. I told Austin Stack this.

“I passed the names on to the Garda Commissioner while making clear that I have no information on the death of Brian Stack.

“The Gardaí are the only body that can investigate this matter. I am prepared to co-operate with them on this.”
