A retired man is to face trial in March charged with 32 sex offences over eight years.

The man was remanded on €1,000 bail to appear at Donegal town Circuit Court on March 27.

Judge Paul Kelly told the west Donegal man at Glenties District Court today(Wed), where the book of evidence was served, that he had 14 days to notify the prosecution if he intended calling alibi evidence as part of his defence.
