Man gets two months solitary confinement for brutal assault

To the left is the photo of the man who prison officials say attacked two of their officers with a deck scrub over a week ago.

However the mother of Zachery Coughlan (25) ,has insisted that he wasn’t the attacker and was only helping a fellow inmate.

She talks to the Limerick Leader today saying,

“Why would he do it, he is only back three weeks and I was speaking to him last Monday He was thrilled to be near home so why would he do this. He has worked so hard to get back here from England. He has now been sent to the hole in Cork where we have no access to him.”

The Ballynanty man will now spend two months in Solitary confinement in Cork for the assault which took place on July 13.
