Liam Adams 2Liam Adams has been found guilty of sexually abusing his daughter nearly 40 years ago.
The 58-year-old, from Bernagh Drive in Belfast, had denied all 10 charges – three of rape, three of gross indecency and four of indecent assault.
The offences were alleged to have occurred between March 1977 and March 1983 when his daughter Aine was aged between four and nine years old.
During a recorded interview, Aine Adams – who has waived her right to anonymity – told a detective that her mother and Uncle Gerry Adams  had confronted her father in Buncrana but he denied any wrongdoing.
Judge Corinne Philpott told the jury of nine men and three women to dispassionately consider all the evidence heard during the two-week trial at Belfast Crown Court.
She told them to ‘discuss things without sympathy or prejudice’.
