A local man in his 50’s has died following a tragic accident that occurred at a house in the village of Kiltealy around 1pm yesterday (Tuesday).
The father of two is believed to have been working on a house, took a short break, and was later discovered with serious injuries by work colleagues.
Emergency services were quickly on the scene, but he was pronounced dead a short time later.
His remains were taken to University Hospital Waterford for a post mortem examination.
Two separate investigations will take place by Gardai and the Health and Safety Authority (HSA).
