Bomb threat to Louth TD Gerry Adams' home

A bomb threat has been delivered to Sinn Fein warning that a bomb had been placed outside the home of Sinn Fein president Gerry Adams.

It comes after the cars of two Sinn Fein councillors were burnt out during the night in Derry.

Martin McGuinness took to Twitter to condemn the attacks on the councillors' cars.

Adams said: "In recent weeks there has been a concerted series of threats and attacks on the homes of Sinn Féin members.

“There can be no place for these type of actions nor will they deter Sinn Fein from working to advance the peace process and advance our political objectives.

“Sinn Fein will not be intimidated.”

It comes in a week of attacks and threats on Sinn Fein members.

On Tuesday paint bombs were thrown at the home of Martin McGuinness in Derry.

On the same day, Sinn Fein candidate Mickey Brady received three death threats in the space of 24 hours.
