I feel ashamed that we in Ireland have allowed a situation to come about whereby two people, in their 60's, have died from the cold, huddled together.........
Good God, what have we become!!Cold snap blamed for Dublin flat deaths | Irish Examiner
However, it is believed freezing conditions over the past few days triggered the couple’s deaths, as there were signs electric heaters in the home had not been switched on in recent days.
Autopsy results also suggested the pair had eaten little food in recent days but had consumed large quantities of alcohol.
Please look out for anyone who may be at risk during cold weather.
