A man in his early seventies was formally sent forward for trial in the Central Criminal Court on 12 charges alleging rape or sexual assault of a female over four year period to 2008.

Garda Michelle Power gave evidence that she had served the book of evidence and Judge Gerard Haughton that the matter was to be dealt with by the Central Criminal Court.

He certified the case for the services of two defence barristers before the defendant was led away in handcuffs.
