Victim Kieran James, 30, wrote in a victim impact statement, which was read out in court today, that his life has changed “to the detriment”.

He told how his wedding later in Kenmare was “marred” for both he and his wife Lauren by the memories of the assault.

He has had to endure painful operations to his nose and suffers onging pain in his shoulder.

And he has suffered “significant financial” loss due to taking time off work unpaid.

“Immediately following the assault, I struggled to sleep at night as my now wife and I had recurring nightmares of the events. We still have intermittent nightmares now,” Kieran said.
