The family and friends of a 25 year old Johnstown man are in mourning following a fatal assault in Liberty Square, Thurles.
James Tynan, a well known and popular butcher, who worked in the family business, Tynan Meats, was left in a critical condition after an allegedly unprovoked assault resulted in him sustaining severe head injuries having fallen to the ground.
He was rushed to South Tipperary General Hospital where his family kept a bedside vigil until he passed away on Monday evening, as a result of his injuries. The night out socializing in Thurles turned to tragedy after the assault. It is believed that he was punched in the face by a man unknown to him and fell to the ground, suffering severe injuries.

“I shouldn’t be scared but I am.” Those were the words of a 74-year-old man, who claims his privately rented home in Killen, just outside Castlederg, has been rat-infested for a month.
William Coulter, who has been living in the house in the Main Street area of the village for just under a year, claims he has been bitten on the hands and legs by the rodents.
Aided by a walking stick, which he uses since he suffered a stroke, Coulter said he has laid his house with rat poison in order to kill the rodents after repeated calls to his landlord to help sort the problem failed. There is also a burst water pipe from the bathroom leaking water into the kitchen.
Coulter said he has been "sleep deprived" since the problem began and can't eat in his own home.
