Is this man utterly tone deaf? One of his nieces, who greatly admires him, in a private and sweet gesture sent him a poem. Her behaviour is beyond reproach. However, was there any need whatsoever for Adams to publicise it in the midst of the current furore he is involved in?
This is the uncle who reported his niece's mother to social services when she spoke out about being raped by his brother (and never reported his brother to the police or social services, and continually ensured he was employed in youth services north and south via his party), who gave his niece a book he dedicated to her rapist father, who tweeted this on the evening after he was challenged in the Dail by the Taoiseach on the Cahill case. He appears to feel hard done by currently, and is apparently seeking sympathy for all the troubles he has.
This is the same sociopathic man who tweets in baby talk, posts about teddy bears and rubber ducks, baths, bed, and children, whose home in Donegal is called Tir na nOg (Land of the Young). How many red lights need to flash before the penny drops?

The dark heart of the Troubles, between the British Intelligence services and their own powerful abusers, the care home sex trade, the Catholic Church abuse and cover ups, and the paramilitaries... makes you wonder what Adams is really protecting because it's not republicanism, or Sinn Fein, or the IRA. But it is a dark secret he, and his allies, would prefer to disappear.
