The Ballymore/ Boher/ Moyvoughley Defibrillator Committee were delighted to see so many people express interest in training in the use of defibrillators.
Fourteen people from the Boher area trained in Boher Hall last week while another eight trained in Ballymore Community Centre. On Tuesday last, eight people from Moyvoughley attended training in Moyvoughley Community Centre. The committee aims to train at least 100 people over the coming weeks.
The instructors/trainers are Breeda Ward from the HSE; Fiona Gibney, Shinglas; Mary Egan, Clairhill; and Damien Scally, Dungay. Great credit is due to them for volunteering their services and for their professionalism.
Over the coming weeks, the defibrillators will be mounted at the various locations throughout the parish. Further training sessions are planned for early in the year. Anyone interested in being trained please contact Declan Rooney, Ballymore; Kevin Killian, Boher; or Joe Flanagan, Moyvoughley as the committee want to ensure those who have expressed interest in the use of defibrillators get the opportunity to train.
Finally, it is hoped to officially launch the project in March with all participants receiving certificates.
