Gardaí are investigating the death of a father of two in north Donegal after he died from injuries sustained in a fall from a roof.

The dead man was rushed to Letterkenny University Hospital yesterday afternoon after the fall in Falcarragh.

He was in his mid-30s and from nearby Gortahork.

He died last night in hospital.

The scene has been preserved and gardaí are conducting an investigation on behalf of the coroner’s office.

His name isn’t being released until relatives abroad have been informed of the death.

The Health & Safety Authority has also launched an investigation into what is being treated as a workplace accident.
