A second fisherman has died after he and and his colleague were overcome by fumes in a trawler in Killybegs last Monday afternoon.
Joel Alma, from the Phillippines, was pronounced dead shortly after 9.30am at Letterkenny General Hospital.
The 46-year-old became ill when he went to the aid of his colleague, James Joyce from Inis Mór, after he was first overcome by the fumes.
The men were cleaning tanks in a refrigeration unit on the Galway-registered 'Oileán an Óir' in Killybegs when the incident occurred.
Mr Joyce died in hospital on Tuesday.
