Death of John Pearson

John Pearson Honorary Life Member Bartenders Association of Ireland passed away on Sunday 18th October 2020, peacefully with his family.JP

John commenced his apprenticeship in bartending in 1958 at the Metropole Hotel, Cork where he worked for many years graduating to the role of Bar Manager, Duty Manager and Beverages Manager.  As part of his apprenticeship training he worked in The Royal Hibernian Hotel, Dublin under the famous George Buller and Jack Lee who were two of the founders of the Irish Branch of the United Kingdom Bartenders Guild (UKBG).
Whilst working at the Metropole he began lecturing on a part-time basis on the Day-Release Bartending Course at the Cork Regional Technical College's Catering and Tourism Department. These courses were the forerunner to the full-time bar courses now on offer by many Institutes of Technology throughout the country. After a number of years he secured a full – time position in Cork Institute of Technology as a Lecturer in the Department of Tourism & Hospitality Studies where he continued to work until his retirement a number of years ago.
 
He was National Education Officer for the Bartenders Association of Ireland and served on the Education Development Committee for the International Bartenders Association.
More than a decade ago, John Pearson received a Lifetime Achievement Award from Declan Byrne, President of the Bartenders Association of Ireland (BAI) for his contributions to the association, bartending and the hospitality industry.
All his friends in the Bartenders Association of Ireland and the International Bartenders Association extend their deepest condolences to his wife Agnes, their sons and daughters: Christine, Neil, Therese, Dolores & John (Junior) and their extended family.
Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam dílís
