A man has died following a suspected heart attack at a popular city centre bar in the early hours of this morning.
Independent.ie can reveal that the male was discovered in Pantibar on Dublin's Capel Street.
Gardaí believe that the 40-year-old man suffered a heart attack before falling down a stairs in the building.
He was discovered before 2am and pronounced dead an hour later in hospital
Dublin Fire Brigade (DFB) and gardaí attended the scene but the death is not being treated as suspicious.
A spokesman for the DFB confirmed that two units, an ambulance and a fire appliance, were called to the scene shortly after 2am.
They took the man by ambulance to the Mater Hospital and administered CPR en route.
He was unable to confirm if the man suffered the cardiac arrest before or after the fall.
The man died in hospital.
The gay bar is owned by Rory O'Neill, aka Panti Bliss, and is one of Dublin's most popular night spots.
Mr O'Neill was a lead campaigner in the gay marriage referendum and has received international attention for his work on equality issues.
A manager at the bar confirmed that a "tragic incident" occurred there overnight.
He said: "We have no comment to make in relation to this." http://www.independent.ie/irish-news/news/man-40-dies-after-suspe etc ...
