Paul Williams: Adams's reaction to this senseless killing reeks of hypocrisy

IWAS aghast when I tuned into RTE's 'This Week' programme to hear the first item up would be Gerry Adams speaking on the murder of Det Garda Adrian Donohoe.
Within a short time my phone was hopping with comments from people appalled at the decision by the state broadcaster to give Mr Adams such a prominent platform to speak about a capital murder.
Mr Adams told the nation how he visited Dundalk garda station to sign the book of condolences. I was a little surprised, given that I believe he, until very recently, had tried to undermine the gardai's work in every way possible.
