Student had 20 drinks before attack with pint glass

A university student from Cork who carried out an unprovoked attack with a pint glass on another college student has received a suspended sentence.

Eamon Leahy of Boherboy Close, Mayfield, Cork pleaded guilty at Dublin Circuit Criminal Court to assault causing harm to Patrick Egan at Sweeney’s Bar, Dame Street, Dublin on March 16, 2012.

The 27-year-old said he had 20 drinks including shots, pints and about seven cocktails before carrying out the assault, which resulted in Patrick Egan receiving 11 stitches spread over four wounds on his face.

Judge Mary Ellen Ring suspended the sentence of two and a half years imprisonment on the condition that Leahy keep the peace and that he obey any directions from the Probation Services, including alcohol treatment.
