21 December 2009 - Mail Online: Sinn Fein leader Gerry Adams has revealed his father sexually abused children in his family. The admission came in a radio broadcast yesterday, just hours after it emerged his younger brother Liam is wanted for child sex offences. Adams said he had known of his father's crimes for more than a decade. One critic, speaking anonymously, said last night: 'Adams's father got a full, republican funeral. The fact this was allowed to happen shows they were all protecting him, right up until the end - and protecting Gerry's career in the movement and his position of power as an MP, nothing else.' UTV 2 November 2011: The brother of Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams has been extradited to Northern Ireland from the Republic of Ireland to face sex offence charges. Liam Adams, 56, was transferred across the border on Wednesday and is now in PSNI custody. Once in Northern Ireland, he was arrested on 18 warrants for rape, gross indecency and indecent assault. Last month, Mr Adams lost his legal bid to appeal his extradition to answer charges of sexually abusing his daughter Aine Tyrell. Adams, who denies the allegations, is due to appear before Laganside Magistrates' Court on Thursday.
