Kilkenny father who repeatedly raped daughter will be sentenced tomorrow

A COUNTY Kilkenny father who repeatedly sexually assaulted and raped his young daughter will be sentenced tomorrow.

The victim, who was aged between seven and 13 years old at the time of the offences, told the Central Criminal Court her father had abused her so often she could not remember how many times it happened.

The court heard the abuse took place at locations including the man’s parents’ home, at his own home and at a wake.

The 43-year-old man, who cannot be named to protect his daughter’s identity, was convicted by a jury following a six-day trial last month of three counts of sexual assault and nine counts of rape on dates between 2008 and 2014.

Ms Justice Tara Burns adjourned sentencing until tomorrow, March 25.
