Aughrim Community First Responders

It is with Great Pleasure that Aughrim Community First Responders can announce Aughrim’s 3rd Public Access Defibrillator. The new unit is located at Aughrim National School beside the main entrance.

The Purchase of the AED and Cabinet would not have been possible without the hard work of the Aughrim National Schools Parents Association. They raised every cent needed to purchase this equipment. They and the School have agreed to make it available for our community to use if needed. So a huge thanks to all involved for that. We would like to thank Kevin Forsyth and his son for their work installing the cabinet for us. They drove from Sallynoggin on a wet Bank Holiday Monday morning to do this work free of charge for the community. We are extremely grateful for this. The locations of our 3 Public Access Defibrillators are: – Aughrim Credit Union, Main Street. – Aughrim National School, Main Street. – Sports Complex, Andy Allen Park. Aughrim Community First Responders are on call 24/7 to respond to our community when they need us. It is through the generous donations and support of our community that we are able to keep our life saving group going.

Our adult team had a well deserved win against a useful Lacken/Kilbride team last Saturday on a score line of 1-11 to 0-10 .It was a keenly contested game and both sides were guilty of a good number of wides in both halves. We started well and were soon three points ahead before Lacken/ Kilbride got on the board but it was not long before it was level. We were ahead at halftime and when Peo Kavanagh finished a good move to the net early in the second half we managed to keep a margin of four points between the teams to the end. Overall an encouraging team performance and we look forward to our next game away to Enniskerry next Saturday, please come along and support.
