The death has occurred, on Tuesday 13 June, after a lengthy illness, of prominent Belfast republican Terence `Cleaky' Clarke. ``I came to know and love him as a brother,'' said Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams in tribute to a man who, in recent years, was security coordinator for the Sinn Féin leadership. ``In the good times and the bad times he was always there. He never hesitated, never shirked any challenge and always did his best.''An Phoblacht will carry a full obituary after Clarke is laid to rest.
