Tipperary barmen plead not guilty over alcohol death of hotel guest
Graham Parish from Lancashire was celebrating his 26th birthday at the Hayes Hotel in Thurles when he died from acute alcohol intoxication in 2008.

TWO TIPPERARY BARMEN have pleaded not guilty to the manslaughter of a man who died from acute alcohol intoxication at their pub in 2008.

Graham Parish of Calder Terrace, Lomeshaye, east Lancashire, was staying at the hotel and celebrating his 26th birthday when he died from alcohol intoxication, UTV reports.

A landmark case is being brought against bar manager Gary Wright, 34, and barman Aidan Dalton, 29, both of Borrisoleigh, Co Tipperary, over Parish’s death.

The jury has been sworn in at Nenagh Circuit Court and the prosecution is expected to open its case this afternoon.

The pub involved is located in the Hayes Hotel in Thurles, Co Tipperary, where the GAA was founded in 1884, the BBC reports.
