A MAN HAS been jailed for eight years for the repeated sexual abuse and rape of his younger brother. Over the course of a decade, John Murphy abused his brother who was aged between ten and 20 years old. The abuse took place in the family home in a town in Cork between 1988 and 1997.

The Central Criminal Court heard that the victim, now aged in his 40s, wished to waive his anonymity so that his abuser could be identified. Murphy (45) formerly of Waterfall, Co Cork pleaded guilty last April to twelve sample counts including three of oral rape.

I was screaming out for help in the wrong way. Every aspect of my life was falling apart,” he said. He said he is now no longer a victim.

“I am a survivor. I am free of his disgusting and sick secret. I give back to John the shame, the loneliness, the resentment, the hatred that he gave to me over 30 years ago. He will carry this burden for the rest of his life,” he said.
