Two arrested following Enniskillen street brawl

A SECOND man has been arrested in connection to a night brawl in Enniskillen recently.

The incident, which went viral after a video of the fight was shared thousands of times online, took place on Darling Street in the town on September 11. The footage showed a number of men in blue shirts, believed to be part of a stag party, in an altercation in the middle of the street.

The men were seen punching and struggling with each other, while one man appeared to be kicked in the head and face.


Last week police arrested a 30-year-old man on suspicion of two counts of grievous bodily harm with intent and affray. He was released pending further enquires later that day.
