Gibbons told Newry Times, “As well as extending my sympathy to the family I would recommend that home owners and landlords install carbon monoxide detectors in their homes to avoid this kind of incident happening and to make sure they regularly check boilers.

He added, “I would also like to commend the Fire Service and Ambulance Service for their excellent response.”
