Durkan attacks Adams over SDLP criticism
20/02/2005 - 20:21:56

Mark Durkan has dismissed claims by Sinn Féin leader Gerry Adams that his party, the SDLP, has done nothing for the peace process.

Mr Durkan has accused Mr Adams of trying to lash out at other parties, instead of sorting out his own.

Durkan reminded Sinn Fein that the SDLP had consistently argued for their inclusion in the peace process.

Taoiseach Bertie Ahern appeared to pull back from his cabinet colleagues’ position today that they were satisfied with intelligence indicating that the top level Sinn Fein politicians Gerry Adams, Martin McGuinness, and Martin Ferris were also members of the ruling seven-man IRA Army Council.

Minister for Justice Michael McDowell made the claim on a radio programme today and was later backed up by the Minister for Foreign Affairs, Dermot Ahern.

However, Bertie Ahern would not be drawn on who he believed might be sitting on this council or attending its meetings.
