Convicted sex offender Liam Adams – brother of former Sinn Fein leader Gerry Adams – has died.

Liam Adams, 63, formerly of Bernagh Drive, west Belfast, was sentenced to 16 times in jail in 2013 for raping his daughter.

The abuse scandal applied Gerry Adams, then Sinn Fein president, under intense public pressure and political scrutiny.

Liam Adams, a former IRA member, was found guilty of a series of sexual assault on Aine Tyrell.

She waived her privilege to anonymity to express their views about the abuse in 2009.
