A 62 year-old man has appeared at Naas District Court over 105 alleged sexual offences going back almost fifty years.
The State is alleging that the man indecently assaulted a nephew between 1971 and 1982.
It is alleged the offences began when the child was around nine and finished when he was in his late teens. The defendant was arrested around 7.45am on March 14 in the north Kildare area.
Naas District Court was told on that day the man made no reply when the charges were put to him.
He was released on strict bail conditions, including the surrender of his passport. The case was adjourned until June 6 for a Book of Evidence to be prepared. The injured party was present in Court.
