The offences took place over a year from May 2004.
Lawlor, who police said "controlled and conditioned" the young girl, had sex with her.
But other offences included causing a child under 18 to be involved in pornography, making an indecent video of her involved in sexual activity, and inciting her to have sex with another man.
Six other men were also facing jail sentences last night after admitting sex offences against the girl.

Lawlor took the girl to Pensarn and Llanddulas beaches where he attracted the attention of men.

Most of the men who had sex with the girl were unaware they were being recorded, he said.
Lawlor also used small ads in the classified ads magazine Loot hinting at wife-swapping. When approached, he offered the girl instead.
Last night, as Lawlor was taken from court to await sentence, DI Jones pledged the police investigation would not stop until they found at least six other men seen on videos commiting sexual offences against the girl.
But he reassured the public they had not uncovered a paedophile ring.
He said: "This individual is central to all the abuse taking place. He is a very evil, controlling man. He has shown very little remorse and at every opportunity he has tried to shift the blame to other people. Thankfully, he has now accepted what he has done. We are not talking about a paedophile ring. We have done a very thorough investigation and that is not the case."
Asked how Lawlor was caught, DI Jones added: "Quite simply our investigation started by good old-fashioned police work. Local officers were aware of incidents in their area and that started our investigation.
"We were very, very surprised at the type of evidence we found, especially the videos." It has been a very challenging investigation involving a large number of people."
Although activities were centred on Abergele the defendants come from as far afield as Wirral and Caernarfon.
Lawlor and six other men will be sentenced at Mold Crown Court on February 27 and 28 by Judge Merfyn Hughes QC. He lifted a Contempt of Court Order which had prevented reporting of previous cases.
