Kinvara Community Defibrillator Project

In December, we’ll replace the existing AED cabinet at Fahy’s in Nogra, as the heater is not working and is uneconomic to repair. The new cabinet will be in the same location, in the Car Park of Fahy’s and will not require a key code to access the AED. Thanks to Fahy’s for continuing to host the cabinet for us. If you live in the area, please take some time to familiarise yourself with the new cabinet. We ran two successful training sessions in November, well done and thanks to all who engaged with training.
We’re taking a break for December, next scheduled AED/CPR courses are:
Mon 14 Jan
Mon 28 Jan
Venue : Kinvara Gaa Club Time: 7 pm – 10 pm Minimum age -16.
The cost of €30 covers cost of providing course materials etc. Contact (087) 168 8373 to book a place. For further information, please contact:
