A Public Prosecutions Service lawyer said the victim received treatment in Craigavon Area Hospital.

Defending solicitor Mr Conor Downey, said it was one punch, committed because Harper had been angry at the behaviour of the injured party.

“He realises he should not have reacted in the way he did,” said Mr Downey.
