Defibrillator in Ballyvolane saves man's life...

First off, this news item is a little dated but still worth mentioning all the same. Back in March of 2016, I had a post up about the Wibbly Wobbly Wonders Running Group and how they were fundraising €6,000 for a new defibrillator. The funds were duly raised and a brand new defibrillator was installed on the wall of Fox & Hounds bar in Ballvolane, close to where the club trains.

In June of 2017, the very same unit was used to save a man's life.

If anyone is interested in doing a Sports First Aid course which include defibrillator training, then Cork Sports Partnership are organising three in the near future. The first one is in Bishopstown next Saturday, the 30th of September. This might be of interest to any clubs looking to train up some of their members.
