A 43-year-old man has appeared at Dungloe District Court accused of possessing child pornography on August 2, 2011.
Inspector David Kelly told the court that it would take at least half a day to hear the case.
The court heard that there would be fourteen garda witnesses and some of the evidence may be of a technical nature.
The man cannot be named because of a reporting restriction imposed by the court.
Inspector David Kelly asked solicitor Catriona Breslin to inform the State should a plea be entered ahead of the hearing date on May 13.
