It is understood that the 56-year-old man who abused four boys during their teenage years is to be named this Monday. The case began in the Central Criminal Court on Monday and Justice Paul Carney who is presiding over the case is to sentence the man this Monday at eleven o’clock.

The man pleaded guilty to 38 sample charges out of a total of 96 on the indictment. The earliest charges dated to 1991, with the most recent having taken place in 2003. The boys were aged between 10 and Leaving Cert age when the abuse took place. All four young men were present in court to hear the evidence.

The man was previously employed as a caretaker in a school after his name was added to the sex offender’s list in 2002. The single man was previously convicted on two counts of sexual assault in December 2002 before the Letterkenny District Court but was not named due to legal reasons. The offences took place in 1985 and 1986 in the same school where he was employed.
