Landmark case begins
Two barmen are due to go on trial this Wednesday in Co. Tipperary for the manslaughter of a British man who died from acute alcohol intoxication on the night of his 26th birthday on June 30.
Gary Wright, 34, a bar manager at the landmark Hayes Hotel in Thurles, Co. Tipperary, and Aidan Dalton, a 29 year old barman, are charged with unlawfully killing hotel guest Graham Parish.
This is the first case of its kind under Ireland's legal liquor liability laws.
Mr. Parish from Nelson, Lancashire, was staying at Hayes hotel in Thurles when he died of alcohol intoxication on July 1, 2008. It is understood that the man choked to death on his own vomit following a night of celebrations.

Both barmen who are from Borrisoleigh in Co. Tipperary are expected to go on trial at Nenagh Circuit Court on the directions of the Director of Public Prosecutions. The men face manslaughter charges following a complex 16-month investigation led by Supt. Tony Cogan of Thurles Garda station.
Hayes Hotel is located in Liberty Square in Thurles and is a popular haunt of GAA supporters. The GAA was founded in the hotel on November 1, 1884, when it was known as the Hayes Commercial Hotel.
This case is set to raise huge national debate over the responsibility owed to the consumer by bar proprietors and those working in licensed premises.
