Reward offered after violent, racist Letterkenny attack

A Donegal security company has put up a 500 euro award for any information that would lead to the arrest of those responsible for a violent racist attack on a security guard in Letterkenny.

On Friday night the security guard, who is originally from Ghana, was patrolling the Bernard McGlinchey Town Park in Letterkenny when he tried to move on a group of people who were drinking.

They refused and began to attack the man, spitting on him and using racial slurs.

Head of Orbit security, Martin Hilferty, is seeking the public's help in tracking those responsible - particularly that of a woman who was along with the men when the attack took place.
