SINN FÉIN HAS said that it is not taking an interest in a set of items made by Gerry Adams’ brother Paddy.

A spokesperson for the party told that the party had no specific plans to purchase the items. 

The lot will go up for sale later today in the Whytes History and Literature auction. The auctions will take place at 1pm in the auctioneers Molesworth Street premises.

The leather satchel and wallet was made by Paddy Adams, brother of Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams, while he was imprisoned in Long Kesh.

Estimated price on the leather wallet and shoulder bag is €300 – €400.

The auction contains a number of other other items of historical and literary interest, including a harp given by WB Yeats to Maud Gonne and rare footage of the 1916 Rising and the War of Independence.
