Adams - Rioting in Dublin entirely wrong and reprehensible

25 February, 2006

Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams MP speaking has described the actions of those responsible for rioting in Dublin city centre this afternoon as 'entirely wrong and reprehensible'.

Mr. Adams said:

"There is no justification for what happened this afternoon in Dublin. Sinn Féin had appealed to people to ignore this loyalist parade and not to be provoked by it. Our view was that it should not be opposed in any way and we made that clear.

"Regrettably a small, unrepresentative group, chose to ignore our appeal. Their actions were entirely wrong and reprehensible."ENDS
