A leading hotelier is fighting for his life after being placed in an induced coma following a fall in Spain.
Tom Moran, who owns the Red Cow Moran Hotel in Dublin, is in hospital in Malaga after sustaining head injuries while at the wedding of publican Charlie Chawke's daughter Jenny in Puerto Banus.
The father-of-seven fell after the chair he was sitting on slipped off a ledge. He suffered internal bleeding.
Mr Moran was admitted to hospital in Marbella, near Puerto Banus, before being transferred up the Costa del Sol to Malaga.
Members of Mr Moran's family travelled from Britain and Ireland to be at his bedside this week, and are maintaining a constant vigil.
Mr Moran previously owned hotels across Britain.
However, he sold the bulk of his group - which comprised Bewley's Hotels - to Dalata in a €455m deal. But he held on to the landmark Red Cow property.
