A man has been jailed for 14 years for an attack on a 70-year-old grandmother, her son and grandson in their home near Gulladuff outside Maghera.

Michael Mongan, 23, from White Rise in Dunmurry, County Antrim, was convicted last year of assaulting Theresa Convery, her grandson Philip Convery and her son Martin Convery.

He attacked them with an iron bar and pistol butt at the house on the Mayogall Road, in June 2012,

Philip Convery who was 16 at the time, suffered serious head injuries and underwent surgery at the Royal Victoria Hospital in Belfast.

Mongan was picked out by Theresa and Philip Convery at an identification procedure following his arrest.

At the time he had 76 previous criminal convictions.

He was sentenced on Thursday.
