Refractory Reiss relents as recalcitrant republican readies visa…

GERRY Adams will be allowed to raise funds from his appearance at a Friends of Sinn Fein function tomorrow. Previously, he had been banned from raising funds, and the US administration had refused to budge for some considerable time. Sinn Fein put the shift down to some successful lobbying, but the only thing the US special envoy Mitchell Reiss was interested in was SF movement on policing. If a highly stubborn Reiss has relented, there must be good reason.
