Priest to face trial on sexual assault charges

An 82-year-old priest has been sent forward for trial to the next sitting of Galway Circuit Criminal Court on two counts of sexual assault.

The priest, who cannot be named for legal reasons, appeared before Loughrea District Court yesterday morning charged with sexually assaulting a 15-year-old boy at separate locations in the west of Ireland more than 40 years ago.

The man was remanded on continuing bail to appear again for the sittings of Galway Circuit Criminal Court commencing October 5.
