The family is asking Mr Adams to apologise for this remark. Ms Quinn said Ms McDonald shouldn't have to ask Mr Adams to do that, adding: "He was the leader of the party. He's a big enough man to come out and say it without having to be asked. He's no child." Ms Quinn said Ms McDonald offered her no commitment that Mr Murphy would say in clear terms that her son was not a criminal.

"I know he apologised for what he put us through for the past 13 years… but he didn't say that Paul wasn't a criminal," she said. "She said she'd be talking to him but no matter how much I pressed her on it she didn't say that he would say those words." She said that Ms McDonald told her Mr Murphy's apology was "truthful and sincere". "I said 'yes but he still didn't say the words we need to hear'," Ms Quinn added.
