Adams expresses condolences on death of Brendan Duddy
Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams TD has expressed his “sincere condolences to the family of Brendan Duddy".
Gerry Adams said:
“Ba mhaith liom mo chomhbhrón a chuig clann iomlán Brendan Duddy. I was deeply saddened to hear of the death of Brendan Duddy.
"Brendan was a tireless advocate for peace over four decades. Often he was in the background quietly working away. Occasionally his role would become more public. But there was always a constant in his determination and commitment to finding agreement, achieving progress, and ending conflict.
"Brendan believed in the primacy of dialogue. Censorship and ignoring the views of others were abhorrent to him.
"In Derry Brendan was widely respected as a business leader but also as a champion of reconciliation. He made a significant contribution to the development of the peace process and to the resolution of parading issues.
"On behalf of Sinn Féin I want to extend my sincerest condolences to Brendan’s family and his many friends.
Go ndéana Dia trócaire ar a anam dílis."
