30 October, 2005


Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams MP has expressed his deep sorrow at the untimely death of party Ard Chomhairle member Daithí Forde, who died early this morning [Sunday]. Mr. Adams has extended his sympathy to Daithí's three children, Thomas, Ciara and Lyndsey.

Mr. Adams said:

"It was with deep sorrow that I learned of Daithí's untimely death early this morning. Although he had been seriously ill, the death of such a young man will be very difficult for all those who knew him.

"In recent years, Daithí played a major role in the development of Sinn Féin both in his native Wexford and throughout Leinster. He was also very active on the national stage and a regular visitor to many counties throughout Ireland where he was held in high regard.

"I want to extend my deepest sympathy to Daithí's family and friends, particularly his children, Thomas, Ciara and Lyndsey. He will be deeply missed by all those who knew him.

"I measc laochra na nGael go raibh sé."ENDS
