In a victim impact statement, Redmond had told Dublin District Court earlier that he had perfect teeth before the assault. He spent €5,400 on medical treatment since and could need more work on his teeth, he said.

He had also told Judge Geraldine Carthy: “What happened, happened. It’s done and over with now, we can just get on with our lives now, it could have happened to anybody”.

The defence had told the court the attack happened during an “explosive moment” when O’Keefe was under stress. He was sorry and had also completed a restorative justice programme with the Probation Service.

The attack was out of character, the defence had said in pleas for leniency.

Redmond then turned to go down a set of stairs when O’Keefe jumped on him and "straddled" him before hitting him six or seven times to his head and face.

During the attack he shouted, “You’ll not be getting on this f***ing unit” and he then jumped off Redmond before heading to the canteen.

O’Keefe had not come to attention since.

A medical report was furnished which referred to a condition he suffered from and which leads to some outbursts of anger. It had also caused him to lose a permanent pensionable job and has had financial difficulties, the court had heard.

O’Keefe had apologised in writing to Redmond, the court heard. The court had heard he accepted there was no justification for his actions and he had been under some stress prior to the attack but he was addressing the issue.
