Gabriel Olatunbosun, aged 22, whose parents came to Ireland from Nigeria when he was three years old, was jailed for four and a half years today at Cork Circuit Criminal Court.
Gardaí said the young man showed no remorse to the victim of a serious assault. Even as evidence was being given of his lack of remorse in court, the young man was smiling in the dock.
When the accused was being taken away to commence his sentence of four and a half years, one of his friends called out to him from the public area of the court: “Hey Gabs, a little holiday.”
Judge Seán Ó Donnabháin said of the assault at The Bowery nightclub in Cork City, “It was a completely unprovoked and vicious assault.”
Detective Garda Brian Murphy said, “He did not show any remorse whatsoever. He appears to have no regard for the consequences.”
