Political sources in the United States have said they expect Sinn Féin president Gerry Adams to be denied a fundraising visa for St Patrick's Day.

Sinn Féin has applied for a visa that would allow Mr Adams to attend a fundraising function in Washington on March 16.

However, US sources say the chances of him securing the visa are remote.

Mr Adams decided not to attend a similar function last year after the Bush administration barred him from fundraising due the IRA's alleged involvement in the Northern Bank raid and the murder of Robert McCartney.
