Share this article


A Dublin man has admitted sexually abusing his younger brother more than 30 years ago.

The brother said he didn't tell anybody about it for years, because he thought it was his fault.

The court heard this abuse started when the boys were around 17 and 11.

The 17 year old first abused his younger brother in around 1982 when his parents were out.

The younger brother said he wasn’t sure how many times it happened after that but he would particularly remember the accused coming home on Sundays while he was in bed and being frozen as he knew what was going to happen.

Believing it was hist fault, he told nobody until he eventually confronted his brother in an email in 2011.

Admission

His brother admitted what he did - with the younger brother later telling him face to face that he would never be the person he should have been because of the abuse.

The younger brother told the court the trust was broken, his innocence was taken and the revelations have torn his family apart.

The now 55 year old accused made a voluntary statement to gardai admitting the offences.

After pleading guilty to indecent assault, he will be sentenced at a later date.
