🇮🇪 Irish republican leader Gerry Adams retires

One of the most famous faces in Northern Ireland is retiring.

Gerry Adams was considered spokesman for the Irish Republican Army in its 30-year war to end British rule of Northern Ireland.

The boy from Belfast became active in Northern Ireland's civil rights movement in the 1960s.

Since then, he's played a pivotal part in the peace process.

The Sinn Fein leader for 34 years is being replaced by Mary Lou McDonald, who has no links to the conflict.
