FINIAN James Egan, 77, arrived at Ryde Court last Wednesday in a black BMW with a disability parking permit and was assisted by two young women, AAP reported.

He was charged on May 1 with 17 sexual offences that allegedly occurred between 1972 and 1987 while Egan was serving as a priest in parishes in Sydney and on the NSW Central Coast.

The charges relate to one boy and three girls.

The court was told that Egan is suffering from an unspecified medical condition that will prevent him satisfying one of his bail conditions to report weekly to Ryde police station.

Egan will not have to report to police from June 7-29.

He was excused from appearing when his matter comes before Downing Centre Local Court on July 18.
