The Ennis branch of Sinn Féin has endorsed Mary Lou McDonald to be the next leader of the party.
Adams has been leader of Sinn Féin since 1983 with McDonald being deputy leader of the party since 2009.
Deputy McDonald's succession to president-elect comes after Gerry Adams previous year announced he would be standing down as his party's leader in 2018.
It is for Sinn Fein...to keep a united Ireland on the political agenda, south and north.
Addressing the Belfast meeting, Ms McDonald said she believes her leadership will mark a defining chapter in the achievement of a United Ireland.

Winning this game will be a good farewell for the Premiership winning player and I think they will be good enough to win. The Blues have kept a close eye on the player's development this season.
McDonald, who has been a Teachta Dala (TD) since 2011 now for Dublin Central, was the only person to put her name forward for the role before nominations closed on Friday.
Sinn Fein's governing council met in Belfast to formally ratify Ms McDonald, with a special conference to elect her to be held next month when Mr Adams, 69, steps down after nearly 35 years at the helm.
She added: "I know I have big shoes to fill taking on the role from Gerry Adams and I know that is impossible but I have brought my own shoes and together, with all of the party membership, we will walk on a journey that will lead to Irish unity".
"Irish unity is the best solution for this island and we will work to convince our unionist friends and neighbours of that", she declared.
McDonald became a member of the European Parliament in 2004.

He said his father was a "huge admirer of her ideas, dedication and commitment", and that she was the "ideal candidate to lead Sinn Fein into the future".
In Belfast, Mr Adams said: "We need to have a party that's fit for objective, we need to have a plan".
She will take over from Gerry Adams.
Joe Root at the double as England peg back Australia
Role clarity in the batting order seems a particularly urgent issue for a team where playing for one's place is in apparent vogue. Just like in game one, Aaron Finch (106) and Mitchell Marsh (36) anchored the innings but got out as Australia began to launch.
