21 January, 2013 - by Gerry Adams

Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams TD has extended his deepest sympathy and condolences to the family of civil rights and trade union activist Inez McCormack.

Mr. Adams said:

“Inez McCormack was a fearless opponent of injustice and a determined champion of civil rights, equality, women’s and workers' rights, and fair employment.

"For decades Inez was a tireless and effective advocate from her days in the civil rights movement in the 1960’s and through her years as a trade union leader. She was particaurly effective in the USA in support of the MacBride campaign for fair employment in the six counties.

"She was a passionate and articulate campaigner who helped place equality at the heart of the Good Friday Agreement.

"Inez devoted her life to fighting for the oppressed and disadvantaged. She had a deserved international reputation as a human rights activist.

"On behalf of Sinn Féin I want to extend my sincerest condolences to her husband Vincent, her daughter Anne, son-in-law Mark and grandchildren Maisie and Jamie."
