A 55 year old Donegal man has gone on trial charged with indecently assaulting a young boy.

Hugh ‘Jock’ McDaniel pleaded not guilty to all five charges which are alleged to have happened at different locations in Inishowen in 1979.

McDaniel, of 40 Abbotswood, Carndonagh denies all the charges against the other man who is now 46 years old.

McDaniel, who appeared in court wearing grey trousers and a blue and white t-shirt, was 22 at the time of the alleged assaults and the alleged victim was 12.

The trial, before Judge John O’Hagan at Letterkenny Circuit Court, is expected to last two days.
