Editorial: Sinn Fein's bloody past

THE shocking claim that Gerry Adams ordered the killing of widowed mum-of-ten Jean McConville is just the latest allegation made against the Sinn Fein President.

It begs the question as to how long this man can remain as leader and the public face of Sinn Fein.

It's doubtful the party will be able to truly shake off the shackles of its past as long as Adams is in charge.
