Barry Davis and his wife Aisling were relaxing at home on a summer’s evening last July, a day after their middle child’s 12th birthday, when she said she fancied a beer.
He told her that was no problem and to go get herself a can, but that he wouldn’t join her because he was going to be driving his taxi early the next morning.
