A former archbishop has told a High Court jury that Nigerian woman Dolores Atwood was very sexually experienced when they began an intimate relationship.
Ex-cleric Richard Burke is suing RTE for defamation over its 2011 Mission to Prey documentary, over claims the programme wrongly depicted him as a paedophile.
RTE denies defamation.
The High Court has heard Nigerian woman Dolores Atwood will testify that the former Archbishop was the first person she had sex with when she was 14-years-old.
66-year-old Richard Burke alleges she was 20-years-old when they slept together in 1989 and he gave evidence today that she was very sexually experienced.
In phone calls with Dolores's husband Christopher in 2007 the former priest said she'd asked him for money; that he felt she was blackmailing him; that she was totally obsessed with him and that the relationship had never stopped in her heart.
He said he was profoundly sorry and regretted the sinfulness of his life but denied being a predator.
He also admitted touching the woman's sister inappropriately. On the stand earlier the former Archbishop admitted sleeping with more than one married woman while a cleric in Nigeria.
