Sinn Fein TD’s visits Republican prisoners in Castlerea Jail

North Kerry Sinn Fein TD Martin Ferris and party leader Gerry Adams have visited the four men convicted of the manslaughter of Garda Jerry Mc Cabe in prison. Mr Adams said that the 4 men, and other Republican prisoners at Castlerea Jail, were updated on developments in the peace process. It’s believed that this included details of the IRA’s final act of decommissioning, expected this weekend. However Fine Gael and the PD’s say the visit is an attempt by Sinn Fein to put the early release of the men back on the agenda. The Government is to hold it’s first formal meeting with Sinn Fein since last January this Friday.
