Sinn Féin party leader Gerry Adams denied new accusations Thursday that he concealed child-abuse crimes within his own secretive movement, this time allegedly committed by a Belfast officer of the outlawed Irish Republican Army.
Mairia Cahill, a member of one of Belfasts top IRA families, appeared alongside a former foreign minister outside Irelands parliament to accuse Adams of conspiring to suppress her reports of being raped by an IRA commander from Adams home district in 1997, when she was 16.

It has always bothered me that that criminal was welcomed into the British establishment with open arms.
Uhh - 16 year old very attractive blond hangs out with IRA terrorist and many years later whines about being raped?
Shudda stayed in school, living with her family - not associating wit a violent terrorist.
You and me both.
Exactly how did he conceal it? From your post, he wasn’t a party to it...
What do you mean by that?
Look up how things were in Northern Ireland in the past. The IRA controlled whole neighborhoods and they were almost impossible to avoid.
What’s with the blame-the-victim outlook? Should we apply that to rape victims of Islamic terrorists too?
Adams the terrorist and thug has been welcomed over here with open arms and it was Bush which clamped down on it.
er you do know that the terrorist group IRA controlled many parts of N Ireland and that they could do anything they wanted .?
It came across from your post that you blame her when she could not have done anything , but she is damn brave to come out now
my thoughts too.
IRA were just thugs and terrorists who controlled those people in their areas and terrorized the very same people in those areas.
As in covered it up.
I am of partly Irish descent and raised Catholic, yet had absolutely no respect for the IRA. That mostly because of its association with three other letters being KGB. Add to that their training with Arab terrorists again in large part supported by the chekists. Gerry Adams remains a commie bastard.
the Clintons, Kennedys and even republicans like King.
They let that scumbag killer into this country and allowed money to flow so they could buy more weapons to kill and terrorize others.
No surprising. He covered up his brother’s sexual exploitation of his daughter.
Bet you a dollar Adams will ultimately flee to Cuba.
I wish he would disappear off this planet, him and his sidekick Martin McGuiness
See, negotiation with terrorists works. /s
Adams’ brother was convicted last year of raping his daughter when she was aged 4 to 9 and received a 16-year prison sentence. Adams admitted in court he had known of the crimes for two decades but didn’t tell police.
Once civilization begins to crumble, the wolves appear, first in the shadows, then openly.
Americans are uniquely blessed with the Second Amendment - the Irish are, for all practical purposes, disarmed prey.
Given the above, she was a gone gosling, and her family couldn’t have defended her. Being a disarmed victim is a bad way to go through life, but the Irish seem to tolerate it.
Pity for the girl, though.
