NEW DEFIBRILLATOR

Further to our meeting on November 21, we are pleased to announce that a Defibrillator will be placed in Goatenbridge soon. We are currently in the process of selecting a location. We will also be holding a training night in the use of it for those who are interested; please forward your name and mobile number to Martin Lonergan 08764907873 or any committee member. A house to house collection will also be taken up on Friday, December 14. Collectors are currently calling to every house in the locality (Ballybacon Area) with envelopes for your anonymous donation and will recall for the collection on December 14. All donations will go towards the cost and upkeep of the defibrillator. A percentage of this collection will also go towards a new Text Alert Initiative in the parish. We would like to take the opportunity to thank Cllr Seanie Lonergan who will be providing the defibrillator and to Kevin and Elizabeth Dalton of Murphy Fuels for sponsoring the security box in which it will be housed.

SYMPATHY

We extend our sympathies to Kathleen and Bob Condon and family, Goatenbridge, on the recent death of Kathleen’s brother, Jack Keating of Drimoleague, Co Cork. May he rest in peace.
