A 71-year-old man appeared at Derry Magistrates’ Court this week in relation to a string of alleged historical sex offences.

John Callaghan of Drung, Quigley’s Point in County Donegal appeared at a preliminary inquiry into the case.

He faces 14 counts of indecent assault against a total of three females between the dates of January, 1972 and January, 1982.

The pensioner spoke only to enter a plea of not guilty to the charges. A date for a further hearing will be set at a later time.
