Sinn Féin has released a statement regarding an attack on the family homes of Party members, Gerry Adams and Bobby Storey.

The attack took place on Friday evening where two explosive devices were thrown, one of which caused damage to a car.

Gerry Adams confirmed on his Twitter account that nobody was hurt in the attacks and he thanked all his "great neighbours, the Neighbourhood Watch & Sinn Féin reps who were here very quickly."

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."
