A Catholic priest charged with indecency in a shopping centre toilet was yesterday remanded on continuing bail at Londonderry Magistrates Court.

Fr Patrick McGarvey (37), from Main Street, Stranorlar, Co Donegal, is charged with observing another person carrying out a private act in a public toilet in Foyleside shopping centre, Derry, for the purposes of sexual gratification.

The charge relates to an incident alleged to have taken place on August 4.

The case was adjourned yesterday at the request of Fr McGarvey's solicitor, Maoliosa Barr, who said the defendant needed some time to consider submissions.
