A former priest has appeared in court charged with indecent assault.

The man appeared at Dungloe District Court in Co Donegal today.

He is charged with one count of indecent assault.

A book of evidence in the case was handed into the court.

Garda Inspector Seamus McGonigle told the court that the Director of Public Prosecutions has consented for the case to be heard at the next sitting of Letterkenny Circuit Court on January 28th next.

A publication order preventing the identification of the man was ordered by Judge Paul Kelly.

Inspector McGonigle said he was not objecting to bail in the case.

The man’s solicitor Mr Frank Dorrian asked for two counsel to be appointed to the man for the case.
