Family say report into Glengad fishing accident brings them closure

The family of two Donegal fishermen who died after their boat capsized off the coast of Donegal have said  a report into the accident finally brings them closure.

65-year-old Edward Doherty, from Ross Head, Malin Head, and his nephew 41-year-old Robert McLaughlin died after their vessel 'Jennifer' sank off Glengad on November 1 last year.

A report released yesterday by the Marine Casualty Investigation Board blamed either wind or wave action, or a combination of both, for the accident.

The report also said that the number of crab pots on board would have had an impact on the stability of the boat.

Edward Dohertys nephew, Martin McDermott has said that he accepts the report and he hopes the family can move on now with their lives.:
