Not publicly, though he may have done so in private. In an interview in 2015, he was asked about whether he talked to himself about the things he had done, and replied:
“Obviously everybody is accountable for their own actions, and everybody has to make judgments based on their own conscience as to whether or not they believe what they were doing is right or wrong... I believed that in a situation where the community that I came from were being treated like second- and third-class citizens that I had a responsibility to fight back against it. And I don’t apologise to anybody for having done that. I think it was the right thing to do.. I was proud to be a member of the IRA... I am still 40 years on proud that I was a member of the IRA. I am not going to be a hypocrite and sit here and say something different.”
