Sinn Fein leader Gerry Adams took a break from canvassing today to enjoy a dance with one of his party's candidates, Rose Conway-Walsh.

Adams had faced a morning of tough questions on whether his past was damaging the party and his plans to abolish the Special Criminal Court.

But at Hennigan's Heritage Centre in Killasser, Co Mayo, Adams grabbed his party colleague by the arm, leading her in a dance as an uilleann piper played on.

Mr Adams was then taken on a tour of the thatched cottage built in the 1870.
