A man has been jailed for 13 years for raping two teenage sisters in Cork.

31-year-old Trevor Casey from Closes Road, Fairhill, was convicted last February of four counts of rape and four counts of sexual assault in 2003 and 2004 at three Cork addresses.

The victims are sisters of Casey's ex-girlfriend and their family said they wanted Casey named in media reports.

Both victims gave evidence during the trial that he raped them after they woke up to find him in their beds.

Casey had denied having a sexual relationship with either girl.

Mr Justice Patrick McCarthy directed that Casey's name be added to the register of sex offenders.

He said sex offender treatment courses were available in prison but rehabilitation could only happen if the offender accepted responsibility and Casey had not done so.

The judge said he noted letters received from Labour TD Kathleen Lynch and former Lord Mayor of Cork John Murray indicating that Casey came from a well regarded family but he said there was little in the way of mitigating circumstances.

He sentenced Casey to 14 years in total with the final year suspended.
