Men convicted of Letterkenny assault seek sentence review

Two men jailed for an attack in Letterkenny which left Derryman Mark Mc Shane permanently brain damaged are appealing their sentences in Dublin today.

Today's Derry News is reporting that Alan Lackey and Aidan Mc Hugh, both of whom have served one year of the two year sentences they received will appeal their sentences today.

Members of Mr Mc Shane's family are travelling to Dublin this morning to address the panel of judges who will consider the appeal. They believe the original sentences were too lenient.
