Priest denies abusing three girls

Priest denies abusing three girls

A Dublin-based priest has denied sexually abusing three County Fermanagh girls more than 30 years ago.

Fr Eugene Lewis, 75, with an address at Cypress Grove House, Templeogue, was arraigned before Dungannon Crown Court on 11 charges involving three sisters.

The charges involve allegations of indecent assault on differing dates in the 1960s and 1970s.

No details surrounding the charges were given to Judge David McFarland, who released Fr Lewis on continuing bail.

The first three counts were allegedly committed between August 1963 and August 1965 against one girl.

The following seven charges, between May 1967 and September 1973 allegedly involved her sister, while the final count, against a third sister, was allegedly committed between April 1965 and April 1967.
