A silver revolver owned by convicted paedophile, Michael Ferry, will be destroyed, Glenties District Court heard today.

Michael Ferry, 58, with an address at Carrick Boyle, Derrybeg, Letterkenny was sentenced to 14 years in prison in 2011, with the final four suspended, for abusing four schoolboys in Gweedore.

It was understood from an earlier court that the gun may have been retained for it’s historical value.

However, solicitor on behalf of Ferry, Patsy Gallagher, today said that he had no objection to the revolver being destroyed.

Inspector Dennis Joyce made an application to have the gun destroyed.

District Court Paul Kelly granted the application.
