GARDAI investigating the deaths of twin brothers at an apartment in Limerick city say it may be a number of weeks before the results of toxicology tests are known.

The bodies of Kevin and Peter Moran were discovered at around 3.30pm last Wednesday when a relative called to the apartment where they lived at Steamboat Quay.

The brothers, who were aged 29, had not been seen for a number of days prior to their bodies being discovered. Post Mortem examinations were conducted at the Mid Western Regional Hospital on Thursday but, according to gardai, the results were inconclusive.

“We are awaiting the results of full toxicology tests, and that may take a few weeks,” said a garda spokesman.

While gardai have launched an investigation into the cicumstances of the brother’s deaths, it is understood they do not suspect foul play.

Meanwhile, the funeral arrangements for Kevin and Peter Moran have been released.

Their removal will take place from Cross’s funeral home tommorow evening and their funeral mass will take place at St John’s Cathedral at 11am on Monday.

Kevin and Peter Moran are survived by their parents Margaret and Greg; their sisters Eva and Christina and their brothers Greg and John.
