Jailing Adair for 12 years, Recorder Joanne Kidd said: "It is clear that you continued to go up and down the streets.
"The purpose was to find Mr McDonagh who you had already injured.
"You mowed him down from behind in circumstances where he was incapable of protecting himself from what was an inevitable blunt force trauma of significant severity."
The court heard Martin now felt like a "broken man" as a result of the life-changing physical and psychological injuries.

The victim spent five weeks in intensive care after surgery on his brain, but his ear could not be re-attached.
Recorder Kidd added: "It is unsurprising that he describes himself as a broken man.
"It is unsurprising that he is acutely traumatised by your behaviour - it is hoped that this sentence in some way brings a degree of closure to what happened to him that night."
Adair, of Leeds, West Yorks., was jailed for a total of 12 years after pleading guilty to inflicting grievous bodily harm and wounding with intent.
