Mr. Adams has sent his ``sincere condolences to Paul's wife Pat, him family and friends''.

Mr. Adams said:

``Paul O'Dwyer was a life long champion of Irish freedom. Over five decades Paul worked unceasingly against discrimination and injustice, in Ireland, in the United States and internationally.
