An Irishman living in the US is to be extradited back to Ireland to face almost 400 sex offence allegations.
The judge’s ruling follows the man’s appearance in a New York State court last Friday.
The man, who left Ireland in 2013, was arrested last month just outside Albany, New York State.
He’s been held in police custody since, and last Friday appeared before an extradition hearing where he faced deportation to Ireland in relation to hundreds of alleged sexual offences – 394 in total.
They include over 177 counts of alleged rape involving two minors, as well as 210 counts of alleged sexual assault.
The abuse is said to have taken place mostly at GAA grounds in the Midlands between 2004 and 2009.
Following last weeks hearing, a judge has ruled that the man remains in police custody until he is surrendered to Irish Authorities.
