The brother of Sinn Fein president Gerry Adams has to wait eight days to hear if he can appeal against his extradition to Northern Ireland.

Liam Dominic Adams is wanted by the Police Service of Northern Ireland to stand trial in relation to 18 alleged offences against his daughter Aine Tyrell, who has waived her right to anonymity.

The 56-year-old, who denies the allegations, lost his fight against extradition from the Irish Republic at the High Court in Dublin last Monday.

His barrister Michael O'Higgins today applied for leave to appeal against the ruling to the Supreme Court, on five points.

Mr Justice John Edwards will give his decision next Tuesday.

Adams, who was supported in court by another daughter, Claire Smith, was granted continuing bail.
