Gardai are investigating a brutal assault in Letterkenny which left one man needing hospital treatment.
A video of the assault which took place at Burnside at Lower Main Street has been circulating widely on social media.
It shows two men fighting before one of the men is knocked to the ground (pictured above is Gardai attending to the man after the assault.)
Two men then attack him but while one man stops the second man continues to kick the victim in the head a number of times as he lies on the ground.
A number of bystanders plead with him to stop as one woman tries to pull the attacker away.
Gardai then arrive on the scene and a number of people are questioned.
A man in his 20s was arrested but later released.
