Gerry Adams springs surprise with a 'Protestant' view of religion

Breaking News

Gerry Adams has sparked surprise after admitting that his religious beliefs are more compatible with Protestantism than Catholicism.

The Sinn Fein president has revealed that he has not gone to confession “in years”, preferring to speak directly to God.

In an interview with Gay Byrne for his new Meaning of Life show on Ireland's RTE1, which aired last night, the republican leader also told how he had to run from his own wedding, spent most of his time living in other people’s homes from the 1970s to the 1990s and missed the first four years of his son’s life.
