On Thursday evening Gerry Adams travelled down to Leinster House to put on a show of defiance outside (shades of the SF delegation’s photo op outside the gates of Stormont). He called on the Taoiseach to have him and Martin McGuinness arrested if he had evidence of their wrongdoing.Adams told Daily Ireland:
I feel a particular sense of betrayal by the Taoiseach. I think the Taoiseach has crossed the line, and the line that he has crossed – and I took legal advice on this – was to accuse Martin McGuinness and I of conspiracy to rob and of withholding information. I feel particularly angry about that.
It also carries a picture of the Sinn Fein protests that cut off traffic temporarily that same evening.
