Sir — Regarding Wayne O’Connor’s report on the attack on Gerry Adams’s Belfast home (Sunday Independent, July 15), how touching of Mr Adams to be concerned for his grandchildren’s welfare, and of Mary Lou McDonald’s concern for him and the threat to the peace process by “dissident” perpetrators.

I never heard them express such feelings at the tragic plight of the children whose parents and grandparents were murdered or maimed by the Provisional IRA — the heroic “rebels” Ms McDonald applauded at her recent election as Sinn Fein President.

Have they ever thought of the children who have never been born, or never will be, because many of the 1,800 or so people murdered by the IRA never had a chance to become parents?
