A 64-year-old Offaly man who raped and sexually abused his two daughters and two step-daughters has been given a 14-year sentence.
The man, who cannot be named for legal reasons, had pleaded not guilty to 100 charges of sex assault, indecent assault and oral rape of four girls between May 1989 and December 2002.
He was convicted of four counts of oral rape, 40 counts of sexual assault and two counts of indecent assault. He denied all the allegations, claiming the women were lying and that it was a "conspiracy".
Mr Justice Barry White took into account the "immense" breach of trust as well as the effect of the abuse on the victims. He also noted that the man has shown no remorse.
