A TEENAGE girl yesterday told a court she had 59 sexual encounters with 22 men when she was only aged 13.

She had earlier claimed at the hearing she had sex 22 times with 17 men.

Yesterday the girl explained that was the figure on a list dated September 18, 2003.

The additional 37 encounters occurred during the following months before the second list was drawn up on December 11.

The girl, now 19, was continuing her evidence at the trial of a 34-year-old married man who denies six charges of sexual assault on her in 2003.

The special sitting of Donegal Circuit Court was told the offences allegedly happened in woods near a south Donegal town.

The girl rejected a defence counsel suggestion that she was willing to exaggerate the number of occasions on which she had sexual relationships.

She said: "These notes were made for myself only. I had no reason to exaggerate."

A garda told the court he got confidential information in 2003 the girl was having sex with two people, one of them the defendant.

Prosecutors said it was not being alleged that the girl did not consent to sex or that the defendant forced himself on her or coerced her. The hearing continues today.
