A man has been found guilty of killing his father in Dublin.

Mark Tims of Rowlagh Green in Clondalkin stood trial for murder but was convicted of the lesser charge of manslaughter.

On July 13th, 2018, Mark Tims was 47 and living with his father Anthony at the home he grew up in.

Their relationship was described as “difficult” and at times “volatile”.

His trial heard a row broke out when his father returned home after spending the afternoon in his local pub, on what was his 74th birthday.

Anthony told his son he was a “disappointment” and a “waster,” and Mark claimed he just lost it and beat him with a cup.

He said he kicked him three times as he lay on the kitchen floor.

He pleaded guilty to manslaughter at the outset, but his plea wasn't accepted by the DPP, and he was tried for murder – a charge the jurors acquitted him of this afternoon.

He’ll be sentenced for manslaughter next month.
