A defrocked Irish priest has pleaded guilty to possessing child pornography.
Oliver O'Grady, formerly of Charlemont Street, and with an address in Ranelagh will be sentenced in January.
The 65-year-old former priest was arraigned at Dublin Circuit Criminal Court this morning and entered guilty pleas on three counts of possessing child pornography.
Two of the charges date back to December 10 last year when Oliver O'Grady was arrested.
He has admitted to having images and audio on a storage unit in Tallaght and on two USB keys and on an external hard-drive.
The third charge is possession of child pornography on a Dell computer at Dublin airport on February 15 last year.
At an earlier court date, gardaí said they were dealing with thousands of images of children from as young as two years old.
Judge Martin Nolan has remanded O'Grady on bail for sentencing on January 30 next.
