Mr. Adams said:
“This is not the first attack on Martin and on his family. As a champion of the peace process Martin has been a frequent target of attack of those who are opposed to it and who want to turn the clock back to the violence of the past.
Those responsible have nothing to offer the people of Ireland.
They have no strategies or political programmes.
They must be resisted and rejected. Neither Martin or Sinn Féin will be intimidated by these groups.”
