Irish man, Nigel O’Connor owes his life to his pet African Grey Parrot, Bobo after a fire destroyed his home just outside Kingscourt, Co.Cavan.
Along with losing his home and all his belongings; he also lost four pet cockatiels.
If it wasn’t for the squawks of Bobo, Nigel said, I would never have woken up. I owe my life to Bobo.

The strong and generous community are now organising a fund to rebuild Nigel and Bobo’s home (contact Kingscourt Credit Union, for details on how to donate)

I’ll keep you updated, it would be very much appreciated if you could share this story.
There is a Facebook page set up by Nigel’s family called ‘SOS DIY appeal’.
