Police suspect thieves stole from landlord as he lay dying in the street
Police suspect thieves stole from a much-loved Irish publican as he lay dying on the street, an inquest has heard. Mick Doheny, landlord at Camden’s legendary World’s End pub, was found conscious with a “significant head injury” last November.
The inquest heard that the Kilkenny man was found to have a blood-alcohol level six times the legal limit and the pathologist gave the cause of death as acute toxic effects of alcohol with blunt force traumatic brain injury. Mr Doheny’s son, Seb, flew into London to contest the charge, arguing that “too much weight” was being placed on his father’s drinking.
