A DUNDALK MAN has been sentenced to eight years in federal prison for the possession of  600 images of child porn, reports the Irish Daily Star.

Farrell Corrway from Dundalk, Co Louth pleaded guilty in May to transporting the images on a computer hard drive while attempting to board a flight in Newark, New Jersey on September 7, 2010.

The 29-year-old had been the subject of a child pornography investigation by the FBI in Buffalo, New York.  When they learned he was planning to leave the US, they conducted a search of his possessions at Newark airport airport and identified multiple images of child pornography on an external hard drive.

US District Judge William J. Martini in Newark Federal court sentenced Corrway to 100 months in prison followed by a further 10 years of supervised release. However, according to the US District Attorney’s office he is highly likely to be deported upon his release.

Corrway first travelled to the US in 2005 on a special peace process visa that allowed Irish people from border areas to seek work in the US.
