Priest case adjourned

A preliminary enquiry hearing for a priest accused of indecent assault has been adjourned at Derry Magistrate’s Court.

Fr Eugene Boland faces four charges of indecent assault on a female. They are alleged to have occurred between June 1990 and June 1992.

The 65-year-old, whose address was given as Parochial House, Killyclogher Road, Omagh, was not present in court on Wednesday. A defence solicitor told the court his client “is not in a position to proceed with the preliminary enquiry today” and it was adjourned for two weeks.
