Gerry Adams was senior member of IRA, insists top republican who sat opposite him at meetings.

A former top IRA man has dismissed Gerry Adams’ claim that he was never a member of the Provisionals.

Des Long, from Limerick, told a BBC NI documentary that he would probably be shot for saying so.

Long, who fell out with Adams after a split in the republican movement in the 1980s, said that the former Sinn Fein leader was on the IRA’s ruling army council and was for a time chief of staff.
