A man who took part in a Temple Bar street attack almost four years ago has had his jail sentence imposed after a judge allowed him to spend time with his new-born daughter.

Judge Desmond Hogan sentenced Nero Omoruyi (20) to three years with 18 months suspended last week, but agreed to delay its imposition to let him see his daughter who was born on the morning of his sentencing.

Omoruyi of North Circular Road, pleaded guilty to assaulting Ross Butler, Mark Jones and Colm Ahern in the early hours of October 10, 2010 at Eustace Street and Curved Street in Dublin 2.

He also pleaded guilty to producing a glass bottle.

Mr Jones, a DJ, and his friend Mr Butler were assaulted by Omoruyi and three other men on the night.
