LIAM Adams, the convicted paedophile brother of Sinn Fein leader Gerry Adams has died, aged 63.
Adams had been fighting cancer and was moved out of Maghaberry Prison near Lisburn, Northern Ireland, earlier this month to spend his final days in a hospice.
He was jailed for 16 years in 2013 after being convicted of rape and sexual assault against his daughter Aine.
Aine, now 45, waived her right to anonymity so her father’s name could be reported as he faced court.
She first reported him to police in 1987 but later said it seemed officers were more keen on information about Gerry Adams than his brother.
In 2007 she went back to detectives after finding out he was working in a youth club that her children attended.

Adams was diagnosed with cancer three years into his sentence and had been receiving treatment while behind bars.
Gerry Adams visited his brother on his deathbed earlier this month.
The former president of Sinn Fein – regarded as the political wing of the IRA – revealed in 2009 that their father, Gerry Snr, had physically and sexually abused members of their family.
