A heartless father who subjected his four young daughters in a “horror of a home” for over 10 years has been handed a sentence.

According to information provided by Judge Patrick McCartan who sentenced the suspect, said Mayo native Bernard Cunningham, 66, has never shown any remorse for subjecting his children to “unspeakable mental and physical cruelty”.

The evil man was found guilty last April by a Dublin Circuit Criminal Court jury returned on eight charges of indecent and sexual assault committed between 1978 and 1992.

Although he pleaded not guilty, Cunningham of Royston, Kimmage Road West, Dublin had he was found guilty. His victims waived their right to anonymity so their father could be identified.

Giving evidence against his father, the eldest daughter, who was the first and youngest victim, revealed that the serious abuse began in the late 1970s when she was about five years-old. She revealed further that her father was a “very violent man” and a “manipulative, powerful bully”.

In victim impact reports one daughter said she had a monster for a father, adding: “ Dad’s mission was to make me as miserable as possible.” He told the victims: “You never did any wrong.” The evil pervert has been jailed for four-and-a-half years.
