A former priest who sexually abused two 13-year-old boys in the 1970s in Dublin and Kildare has received an 18-month jail sentence today.
Patrick McCabe (aged 77) told gardaí that one of the boys who he abused in a car outside a school in 1977 met the “requirements” of his “fetish”.
The other boy was abused in a house adjoining the Pro-Cathedral in Dublin at the time of the Pope’s visit in 1979.
The former priest has previously received an 18-month sentence at Dublin Circuit Criminal Court for indecently assaulting young boys.
This sentence has been backdated to June 2011, when he went into custody following his extradition from California to meet abuse charges.
