Tragic Time for Families - Adams

Sinn Fein President Gerry Adams MP commenting on news reports of the recovery of remains at Castleblaney, Co. Monaghan, said:

``It is a very sad and tragic time for the families. Our thoughts and prayers are with them.

``The efforts in recent weeks to recover the remains have been a long and painful process for everyone involved.

``The circumstances and the passage of time made the recovery of these remains more difficult than was anticipated. Our hope is that the other remains will be recovered soon.''
