A 70-year-old priest has gone on trial for the alleged sexual abuse of two brothers in a Co. Galway school during the 1970’s.

The priest denies ten counts of sexual assault, contrary to Common Law, against the brothers which are alleged to have taken place on various dates in the school between September 1, 1970 and June 30, 1971.

The first complainant told the jury of seven women and five men at Galway Circuit Criminal Court  that he had just started secondary school aged 13, in September, 1970 when the abuse started.

He said the priest sexually assaulted him on a bed in a room on several occasions between September and December, 1970.

When interviewed in 2006, the priest said he remembered both complainants but denied the allegations made against him.
