WARNING: Some readers may find this footage disturbing.

On Wednesday, a judge jailed the former soldier who repeatedly punched and kicked his ex-partner, fracturing her eyes, face and skull.

Ms Bowes begged for her life during the “merciless” attack by McSherry (34). McSherry was high on cocaine when he breached a barring order to wait at the victim's home to assault her.

At Dublin Circuit Criminal Court, Judge Melanie Greally said that McSherry's “brutal acts of violence” left his victim unconsciousness and in “a very perilous position”.

McSherry of Cedarbrook Walk, Cherry Orchard, Dublin pleaded guilty to assault causing harm at Grange View Way, Clondalkin on December 20, 2015.

Footage of the attack, played in court, showed him punching Ms Bowes to the ground, kicking her at least four times and then dragging her along the ground and continuing to punch her.
