12 March, 2018 - by Gerry Adams

Sinn Féin Louth TD Gerry Adams has appealed for anyone with information relating to the remains of those killed and secretly buried by the IRA almost 30 years ago to bring that information forward.

Teachta Adams said:

“Work has commenced in a new search for Joe Lynskey, one of those killed and secretly buried by the IRA mostly in the 1970s.

"Since 1999 thirteen of the 16 people listed as ‘disappeared’ have been recovered.

"I want to commend the work of the Independent Commission for the Location of Victims' Remains (ICLVR) and all of those who have assisted them.

"I would appeal to anyone who might have any information relating to the remaining cases to bring that forward. This includes anyone who was previously in touch with the Commission. 

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