Sinn FÉin President Gerry Adams last week added his voice to those extending their best wishes to former South African President Nelson Mandela on his 90th birthday.
In a statement issued on Friday, 18 July Adams said:
“I have had the pleasure of meeting with Nelson Mandela on a number of occasions since his release from imprisonment on Robben Island.
“Sinn Féin have enjoyed a long relationship with the ANC and they have played a key role in the development of the Irish peace process.
“On this the occasion of his 90th birthday I would wish to extend my best wishes and those of Irish republicans to former President Mandela.”
