Donegal based entrepreneur who featured on RTE’s Dragon’s Den dies

Police are investigating the death of a Donegal based entrepreneur who featured on RTE’s Dragon’s Den.

The PSNI said a post mortem examination on the body of Herbie Porsche will take place today.

Mr Porsche, 60, was working on a boat when he took ill at Crawfords Marina, Carrybridge, Co. Fermanagh, on Wednesday evening.

The German, who lives outside Inver, Co. Donegal, persuaded Dragon’s Den judge Gavin Duffy to invest in a toilet pipe cover to improve the appearance behind toilets.

He became such a star locally from his Dragon’s Den appearance that he was the 2010 Grand marshall in the St Patrick’s Day parade in Ardare, Co. Donegal

Mr Duffy said  that he believed Mr Porsche suffered a heart attack and fell into the water in Lough Erne from the boat.
