We were delighted to host a thank you evening for those who contributed to our group recently.
Edith Scanlon chose our group to be the beneficiary of her employee purchase scheme which allowed us to purchase two new AED’s for our community, these AED’s will be carried by our responders when attending calls and are a huge asset to our group, Edith was joined on the evening by her Mother Nell Prendergast and sister in law Mairead Prendergast, On behalf of our group and our community THANK YOU Edith for your kind contribution.
We were also joined on the evening by a delegation from local outdoor activities group Knockmealdown Active, We were joined by Chairman Joe Byrne, Grainne Moynihan, Kevin O’Donnell, and Mark Rylands. Knockmealdown active chose to donate four two way radios to our group. These radios are vital kit when attending calls as the geography of our area does not lend kindly to mobile phone coverage, these radios allow us to stay in contact with each other and pass on vital information to the National Ambulance Service (NAS) on the status of the emergency.On behalf of the group and the community we would like to say THANK YOU to Knockmealdown active for their kind contribution to our group. We would not be able to function without the kindness and support of the public and as always we are truly grateful once again THANK YOU.
We would also like to acknowledge Tipperary County Council for funding received for additional radios purchased through its Community enhancement grant.
Watch this space for exciting updates coming soon on our coffee morning and Emergency Services Open day which we will host in Newcastle GAA complex on August 27th!!! -Sean Byrne Chairman Newcastle CFR.
