The Meetings of the Waters in Avoca made famous by Thomas Moore when he penned his melody of the same name and well-known tourist attraction,  known for its fabulous food, inviting atmosphere, traditional music and now Derek, his family and team have gone a step further and added a life-saving feature to The Meetings with a 24×7  Public access Defibrillator.

The Meetings have had an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) for some time, but in conjunction with Avoca and Conary Community First Responder Groups, Local voluntary groups who respond to 999/112 calls of behalf of the National Ambulance Service to Cardiac Arrest, Chest Pain, Choking and Stroke calls, Derek has now made the defibrillator available to the local community in an outdoor heated cabinet supplied by Avoca Community First Responders, funded through local fundraising efforts, this could be a potential lifesaver to either a customer, to a passer-by or anyone in the locality.
