A former Waterford sports coach has been sentenced to an additional four and a half years in prison for sexual assaults of five boys between 1979 and 1990.
Bill Kenneally - who had an address at Summerville, Newtown in Waterford city - is already serving 14 years behind bars for the abuse of 10 other boys in Waterford.
The 72-year-old had initially pleaded not guilty to 266 counts of indecent and sexual assault, but changed his plea to guilty on the sixth day of his trial.
He assaulted five boys on multiple occasions in locations in Waterford, Cork and Kilkenny on dates between December 1979 and March 1990.
The court heard victim impact statements earlier, with one of the victims breaking down in court, saying his life had been ruined by Kenneally.
Others spoke of the trauma, hurt, pain and psychological damage done to them and their families by Kenneally.
The court heard Kenneally was a basketball coach who drove groups of boys home from sessions, dropped them off until one was left, who would then be subjected to the assaults.
His victims were aged between 13 and 15 at the time.
The new sentence of four and a half years is to begin after the current sentence ends.
