Chef jailed for glassing attack

A CHEF who slashed a college graduate's face with pint glass has been jailed for two and half years at Dublin Circuit Criminal Court.

Thomas O'Connell (30) had no explanation for or recollection of the assault.

O'Connell of Whitechurch Park, Rathfarnham, pleaded guilty to assault causing Alan Crowley harm at Howl at the Moon on Lower Mount Street on July 9, 2011.

Judge Martin Nolan said the victim was "minding his own business when for his own reason Mr O'Connell attacked him with a glass".
