A 66-year-old father-of-three has been jailed for over two years after he pleaded guilty to a series of sexual offences on three sisters.

Yesterday’s sitting of Donegal Circuit Court heard how the offences took place over an eight year period.

Frank McHugh, Narin, Portnoo, a former employee with Bord na Mona, who was described as “retired”, pleaded guilty to a total of 17 counts of sexual assault on the three sisters between October 1977 and November 1985.

Det. Garda David Moore told the court that the matters first came to light when the sisters informed each other of the abuse which resulted in the disclosures being made.
