18 August, 2003

West Belfast MP Gerry Adams has expressed his 'shock and outrage' at the weekend murder of Lower Falls man Danny McGurk. Mr. Adams extended his sympathies and condolences to Mr. McGurk's family.

Mr Adams said:

"On behalf of the people of West Belfast I want to extend my sympathies and condolences to the family and friends of Danny McGurk. This is a sad and enormously difficult time for all of them.

" There is a great sense of anger and outrage within West Belfast at the brutal and senseless murder of Danny McGurk on Sunday morning.

"The people of the lower Falls are also deeply offended at suggestions that Mr. McGurk was the target of a punishment shooting. On the contrary Danny McGurk was the victim of gangsterism and thuggery." ENDS
