A man has been charged over the deaths of two Irish workers in a construction accident.
The Department of Justice said the company has been notified of the charges.
The two men, who were not identified, died after a section of the road was collapsed.
They are believed to have been working at a construction site in Limerick when a section collapsed on them.
They were found unconscious with injuries to their heads and legs.
The contractors said that they are cooperating with the investigation and have suspended their operations.
The department said that it is liaising with local authorities and gardaí in the area to determine the full details of the investigation.
In a statement, the company said it is working with the State Coroner’s Office to determine how to deal with the death and to determine what action to take.
The company said that the two men died of natural causes.
A statement from the company read: “We are deeply saddened by the loss of our two men at the site of this accident.
We are deeply sorry for the devastating and tragic impact this has had on their families.”
Our thoughts and sympathies are with the families of the two workers and our thoughts and prayers are with those who were injured.
