A former garda detective has been jailed for four years for multiple sex attacks on his younger sister in the 1970s.

The 62-year-old man, who cannot be named to protect the victim’s anonymity, was aged 19 to 20 years old in the summer and autumn of 1979 when he repeatedly indecently assaulted the girl at the family home in the Munster area. She was aged 15 at the time.

The now retired garda pleaded guilty to five counts of indecent assault and five counts of unlawful carnal knowledge of his sister on unknown dates between May to October 1979.

A garda witness told Eoin Lawlor BL, prosecuting, that the offences took place in the girl’s bedroom and in a shed on a farm.

The man would come into her bedroom at night, wake her up and then sexually molest her and force her to sexually fondle him. The court heard he would then climb on top of her and have sexual intercourse with her.

The man followed the girl into a shed and closed the door behind him on other occasions. He asked her to perform oral sex on him, and she refused. He would grope her before forcing her to have sexual intercourse with him.

  

The abuse ended when the man began college. Between 2005 and 2006, the woman told a doctor and her husband about the abuse. The allegation also became known to her siblings, which caused friction in the family as some members did not believe her.

Mr Lawlor read a victim impact statement on behalf of his client, stating: “Over the years, I always wanted to report it, but I felt I would not be believed.”

The statement also outlined the woman “was only existing” and that she had tried to take her life on three occasions. While the woman was in the hospital, the man visited her and admitted to her that he had abused her.
