The brother of Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams, who is facing charges relating to the sexual abuse of his daughter was reportedly a youth worker in Dundalk, Co Louth.
According to this morning's Sunday Tribune, Liam Adams was very active in the party even after the 1980s when Gerry Adams became aware of the alleged abuse.
Liam Adams, who is on the run from the PSNI, is facing 23 charges relating to the case.
A statement from Gerry Adams on Friday night urged his brother to turn himself in to the PSNI to face the charges of abusing his daughter
Aine Tyrell alleges she was abused by her father over a period of eight years from when she was just four years old, beginning in the 1970s.
Speaking during a UTV Insight programme Gerry Adams made a direct appeal to his brother to hand himself in to the PSNI.
He said he fully supports his niece and has given a statement to police officers
However today's Sunday Tribune paints a different picture, saying that Liam Adams traded heavily on the Adams name
He also sought Sinn Féin's nomination to be the Louth candidate for the 1997 Dáil election and while he failed to win it he was said to be very active within the party in Dundalk
The article also said that Liam Adams worked with young people in the town as late as 2004.
