A Sligo man was been sentenced to 13 years for the death of Mari Keane Connolly in Boyle last October.
33 year-old John Lynch with an address at Church View in Boyle was convicted of the manslaughter of the 5 year old at her home on the Tarmon Road in Boyle in October last year.
Lynch was also sentenced to eight years for arson with intent to endanger life and eight years for causing serious harm to Mari's father, Richard Connolly.
He suffered spinal injuries while trying to save himself and his three daughters from the blaze.
Judge Anthony Hunt said the three sentences are to run concurrently from 13 October last year.
