Cahir Defibrillator Group and the Cahir and District Lions Club are holding a series of fundraising events in the district.
Cllr Seanie Lonergan says that the battery packs and the electrodes now need to be renewed. Seanie wishes to thank the Cahir Bingo group for their very large donation of €1,000, this donation will go a very long way in meeting the purchase of the vital equipment.
It has been five years since the Defibrillator Group was formed and in that time there have been three lives saved, the latest being last June.
One of the fundraisers will be a bring and buy book sale, so if you want to clear your shelves of reading matter please contact Seanie or Jacqui Mullan, Patsy McGuirke or Mary Fahey.
On November 7 there is a ‘Taste of Italy’ night in the Gallilleo Restaurant, tickets from Seanie, Jacqui or Patsy.
