Justice Tony Hunt thanked the eight women and three men, saying they had discharged a "very difficult task". He excused them from further service for ten years.

Justice Hunt said he had the "sad and grim duty" of sentencing Colgan to life. He said it is sometimes satisfying to send a person to prison but this was not one of those occasions. While saying he could find no fault with the jury's decision, he said he is sure that Colgan did not go out that evening with any intention of doing what he did and that if he could turn back the clock he would.

He also offered his condolences to Mr Sheridan's family and said it was clear the deceased was a "nice man" who did not deserve to die in such a "cruel" way.

Justice Hunt also called on the Law Reform Commission to look at the defence of provocation that was used by Colgan, particularly in cases where an accused person brings an offensive weapon "in to play".

After speaking with and hugging members of his family, Colgan was led away to begin his life sentence.
