County Sligo Circuit Court has heard that the trial of the Irish nun facing 87 charges of sexual abuse will take place over two weeks next year.

The court heard that a number of disclosures had been given to the defense by the prosecution. The case initially came before the courts this March.

Judge Anthony Hunt told the court he hopes the hearing will take place in January or February, the Irish Times reports.

A number of the alleged victims of the nun were present in court on Tuesday.

The alleged offenses date back to the 1970s. The case was transferred from another county following legal action against the nun. Neither she nor her victims can be identified due to legal reasons.

The nun was remanded on bail until 2nd October, however, her case will be mentioned again on 5th June.
