Two years for vile sex abuser

A former GAA coach, who indecently assaulted two young boys in Ennis during the 1980s, is beginning a jail sentence. 

Ennis man James ‘Tony’ Maher (69) received a two-year prison term for what a judge described as the “manipulative exploitation” of his victims

Maher had previously pleaded guilty to 19 counts of indecent assault on children aged 11 & 13 years old
