The two men were tragically killed on Tuesday when a wall at the Connacht Gold DIY and Garden Centre in Longford town collapsed. The accident happened at around 2pm when there were a number of customers in the store.
Four other people were injured in the incident. One of the injured, Padraig Galvin, underwent surgery on Wednesday where he had metal plates inserted in his leg. He remains in the Midwest Regional Hospital in Mullingar.
The accident is under investigation by the Health and Safety Authority which is currently interviewing eye witnesses.
