Stamullen Defibrillator – Update
A new defibrillator for Stamullen has been located on the outside wall of the parish centre. It has been funded principally by the efforts of Sean O’Donovan and his team from his Atomic Fitness Group and they are to be commended greatly for their initiative and their fund-raising efforts.
My understanding is that a number of volunteers will be trained in the use of the defibrillator and will be first responders in the case of an emergency. We look forward to this part of the project coming to fruition.
