Sinn Fein Omagh District Councillor Marty McColgan has said he is shocked at an attack in Omagh town which has left an Omagh man fighting for his life. The man, named locally as Darren McBrearty from Omagh was assaulted on John Street in the town at 8pm on Sunday evening.

Speaking local councillor Marty McColgan said local people were shocked:

"It is terrible news to hear about what happened to Darren McBrearty this evening. My thoughts and prayers are with Darren and his family at this worrying time and I hope that everything turns out all right. Local people are shocked at this and it certainly not something people want to see happening in the area. I would ask that anyone who has information about what happened to make it known so that there can be a full investigation and Darren and his family can get the truth about what happened.
