Seán Canney T.D. has welcomed the allocation of funding to Eyrecourt and District Cardiac First Responders in the sum of €4,080 and a sum of €10,460 to Killascobe Defibrillator group. Galway Mountain rescue received a grant of €9,223 for a vehicle upgrade and other equipment. Irish Community Rapid Response (ICRR) in Galway received €5,844 for equipment.
This funding has been allocated through the Department of Community and Rural Development and provides much needed funding to ensure that we have defibrillators and other life saving devices available in the county.
‘These community groups are providing a very important life-saving service within their communities and it is important that we continue to support them financially from central Government’
