In an article published on 6th November 2015, it was stated that Gerry Adams during a speech given at a fundraiser in New York '… joked about the editor of the Irish Independent being held at gunpoint'.

We wish to clarify that Mr Adams did not joke about holding the editor of the Irish Independent at gunpoint. He was, in fact, referring to an historical event which occurred almost a century ago during the War of Independence.

We apologise to Mr Adams and we are happy to clarify this.
