Tipperary Male Charged With Manslaughter In Thurles

Thurles Courthouse

A 23-year-old male has appeared, today, before Thurles District Court, on the serious charge of manslaughter.

The charge refers to an assault at Liberty Square, Thurles, Co.Tipperary which resulted in the unfortunate death of 25-year-old Mr James Tynan, a native of Johnstown, Co.Kilkenny, on February 20th last 2012.

A male, then aged 22, from the Templemore area, was arrested in relation to this incident and detained under Section 4 of Criminal Justice Act, at Thurles Garda Station.

It is understood that there was CCTV in the vicinity of where the incident happened and gardaí, headed by Supt Pat Lordan, examined digital film footage as part of their then ongoing investigations.

The late Mr Tynan was an extremely popular and much loved young man, who worked with his father Pascal, in Tynan Meats, in Johnstown, Co Kilkenny and our sympathy is with his family at this sad time.

The defendant was remanded in custody to appear before Nenagh District Court on Friday September 7th next.
