Joseph McDermott of Omagh, County Tyrone, and Gerard Bradley from near Macosquin, County Londonderry, were 2 of the construction workers killed in Perth in the last week but there were also 3 other Irish people who died in the state.

According to the charity that returns the bodies of deceased people home for burial abroad, there were a total of 5 Irish people who died in WA in the past week.

The deaths of the 2 construction workers have shocked not only their colleagues and friends on the work site but the entire construction industry.

Reports say the men were crushed by a concrete slab that fell from a crane.
