A defrocked priest has pleaded guilty at Dublin Circuit Criminal Court to three counts of possession of child pornography.

Oliver O'Grady admitted having abusive images of children on a laptop at Dublin Airport, on a hard drive and USB keys in a Dublin hostel, and on video and audio cassettes in a storage unit in Tallaght.

The 63-year-old lives in a flat in Ranelagh village.

All of the offences were committed last year.

He will be sentenced next January.
