Priest sex offence case adjourned


A hearing to determine whether a court case will proceed against a Roman Catholic priest accused of sex offences has been adjourned.

Father Eugene Boland, from Moville in Co Donegal worked as a priest in Counties Londonderry and Tyrone.

He is accused of four indecent assault charges which date back almost 20 years.

Fr Boland stood aside from clerical duties as St Mary’s in Killyclogher, Co Tyrone in August 2010 when a police investigation into child safety and welfare began.
