LMFM apologises to Gerry Adams for ‘false and defamatory’ reporting

The Sinn Féin TD welcomed the apology

"In a statement, the Drogheda-based radio station said it 'unreservedly retracts these false statements which we acknowledge should not have been broadcast in the first place' and apologised to Gerry Adams."

LMFM radio station has unreservedly apologised to Louth Sinn Féin TD Gerry Adams for false and inaccurate statements which it broadcast earlier this year.

In a statement, the Drogheda-based radio station said it “unreservedly retracts these false statements which we acknowledge should not have been broadcast in the first place” and apologised to Gerry Adams.

The original comments were made on the Michael Reade Show on the 14th and 15th of February and related to the 1991 killing of Tom Oliver in Belleek, County Armagh.

The Sinn Féin TD welcomed the apology and thanked his solicitor Paul Tweed for his efforts on the case.
