A farmer, in jail for previous child abuse charges, has seen his sentence increased by seven years.

Ronan Mc Cormack, of Cloonloo, Co. Sligo, was already serving a sentence for the abuse of five boys back in the 1980’s.

The abuse was carried out whilst Mc Cormack was a GAA coach for his local team. His sentence was increased, after two brothers brought a case against the Sligo man. One of the brothers said in court that the abuse first happened when he was 11-years of age in 1972. He said the incidents had made him feel like damaged goods.

He also told the courts of how he missed out on many career opportunities and relationship opportunities. He also recounted how he has suffered from years of depression as a result. The man said he still suffers from nightmares as a result, and recounted how he often wakes up at night to the smell of McCormack.

The victim told the court that he was abused by the defendant up to 100 times. The attacks were carried out in his McCormack’s family home, the cinema, on a boat and even in McCormack’s car.

McCormack was already serving an eight year sentence for the abuse of five young boys back in the 1980’s. He was jailed for the offences back in 2014. Presiding judge Martin Nolan noted that McCormack had been in his thirties at the time of the abuse and said he should have been in better control of himself.

The Sligo farmer was sentenced to a further seven years in prison.
