“It’s a wee while since the PSNI arrived at my house with sniffer dogs” Bomb threat at home of Gerry Adams

This is the latest in a series of threats and attacks on the homes and property of Sinn Féin politicians.

In the past week there have been four serious attacks, 7 death threats and bomb alerts at the homes of Sinn Féin representatives.

Sinn Féin Leader Gerry Adams said that his wife Colette was present at their Belfast home when a bomb threat was made earlier today. Louth TD Adams, added that she is “probably well seasoned in these matters”. And that “That’s the environment in which I and others work, we just get on with it”. “It isn’t that long since I have received a threat but it is a wee while since the PSNI have arrived at my house with sniffer dogs”.

Adams said that he doesn’t who the individuals are behind the threats. Party colleague Martin McGuinness feels that dissidents are to blame.

Adams said “The silence from the government here and the Fianna Fáil leader on this is deafening. Was this an attack on any other party Sinn Féin would stand shoulder to shoulder with whoever the targets were, making it clear that it is unacceptable”.

Adams asked Kenny about it in the Dáil earlier and the Taoiseach said that he and the government “condemn unreservedly” the attacks and bomb threat.

Sinn Féin say that “we will not be intimidated by thugs, we will continue to pursue our equality agenda in Belfast City Council”.
