In an official statement released by Sinn Féin, they slammed the attacks as being cowardly and carried out by “desperate and irrelevant groups.”
“These were reprehensible and cowardly attacks on the family homes of Gerry Adams and Bobby Storey.
“Grandchildren were in the driveway of Adams’ home minutes before the attack.
“I would appeal for calm. These attacks are the desperate acts of increasingly desperate and irrelevant groups.”
“They must be condemned without equivocation by us all.”
