The Adams family abuse timeline…

The BBC have put together a useful timeline of the ‘story’… it marks the period of the alleged abuse (1978 – 1983) and the age of his niece as just 14 when both the police and Gerry Adams are first informed of the allegations (1987)… And the period in which Liam Adams worked in Clonard Youth Centre… (1998-2003)
