Abstract : We find congruences modulo $32$, $64$ and $128$ for the partition function $\overline{pp}_o(n)$, the number of overpartition pairs of $n$ into odd parts, with the aid of Ramamnujan's theta function identities and some known identities of $t_k(n)$, for $k=6, 7$, where $t_k(n)$ denotes the number of representations of $n$ as a sum of $k$ triangular numbers. We also find two Ramanujan-like congruences for $\overline{pp}_o(n)$ modulo $128$.
