Men die in work accidents in Wexford and Roscommon

The Irish Health and Safety Authority has launched two separate investigations after two men died in work-related accidents on Friday.

A man in his 50s died after he fell into a storage unit at a farm in Cooladine, Enniscorthy, County Wexford, at about 09:00 GMT.

Police and the Health and Safety Authority are carrying out separate investigations.

Just over an hour later a man in his 60s died in Roscommon.

He became trapped under a load of steel at a factory at Ballaghdareen.

He was airlifted to University Hospital Galway, but died of his injuries.
