Gerry Adams’ brother to face sex charge trial

The brother of Sinn Fein president Gerry Adams is to be extradited to Northern Ireland to stand trial on allegations that he sexually abused his daughter.

Liam Dominic Adams is wanted by the Police Service of Northern Ireland in relation to 18 alleged offences against 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.

Mr Adams has 15 days to lodge an appeal against the court’s ruling before the extradition order takes effect.

He is accused of rape, indecent assault and gross indecency at various addresses in Belfast between March 1977 and March 1983, when the alleged victim was aged between four and 10.
