A former RTÉ producer has appeared in court in Dublin charged with 17 child abuse offences.

58-year-old Kieran Creaven - with an address at Adelaide Street in Dun Laoghaire - is due back in court next week.

He was brought before the Dublin District Court this afternoon where the judge heard he was arrested at 8.15am this morning at his home.

He is facing 17 charges.

They are two counts of sexual assault of a child outside the State in 2014, three counts of sexual exploitation of a child outside the State in 2014, three counts of sexual exploitation of child inside the State in 2017, five counts of possession of child abuse images in Ireland in 2017, and four counts of using communication technology to communicate for the purpose of facilitating child sexual exploitation inside and outside the State in 2017.

The offences are alleged to have happened in 2014 and 2017.

When he was charged and cautioned at Dun Laoghaire Garda station this morning, he replied 'No response until I've spoken with my solicitor'

Mr Creaven was remanded in custody with consent to bail with a surety of €10,000 and a number of strict conditions.

They include that he sign on every day at a Garda station and he refrains from using Facebook or Skype.
