Ballintubber Defibrillator Church gate collection

Ballintubber Defibrillator Group is holding its annual Church gate collection this Saturday and Sunday (9th and 10th  of November). 

  There are currently three defibrillators in the parish, one in the village opposite the Church, one at the head of Carane Road and one at the Enfield GAA pitch. The group is endeavouring to encourage new people to train to use the defibrillators and will be holding more training very soon. The aim would be that every household would have someone trained to use a defibrillator and be able to resuscitate someone in need if required. 

  The defibrillators, batteries and their covers are quite costly and your support for the Church gate collection would be greatly appreciated.
