Yesterday at Dublin District Court, former rugby coach John McClean was charged with more than 30 counts of assaulting schoolboys at Terenure College between 1973 and 1989.
Mr McClean, a former director of UCD’s rugby academy, is charged with indecent assault on nine boys over a 17-year period.
The charges were prompted by work from investigative journalist Gemma O’Doherty, who spoke to a number of Mr McClean’s alleged victims in Village magazine in the past year.
The reports claimed some gardai were aware of allegations against Mr McClean for decades.
Ms O’Doherty covered the matter last night on her Livestream with court correspondent Tom Tuite. Watch here.
