Re-training for our first responders will be due every 2 years, please ensure your training is current and certified

The Parish Council began the process of providing Defibrillators for our parish in September 2012. Training for cardiac responders was also required and this began in February 2013. Following the first round of training, two AED's were fitted and these units are located in the areas shown below. Training will continue and include child CPR as well as techniques to use in the event of choking.

Please watch you need to see this video and hopefully it will inspire you to get trained (free course)

For trained first responders, please read over this page form time to time and watch the cpr videos below to keep your knowledge fresh between training sessions




In the event of an EMERGENCY you need to be prepared as time is everything. Please read the following post here and make sure you are prepared to act




Where are the Defibrillators located?new defib location in ballynacally





ballynacally defib training

Initial training of Cardiac First responders took place over a weekend in February 2013. Groups of 6 were trained over 4 sessions. Further training took place after easter 2013 and refresher training is proposed to take place every 2 years.



Good Samaritan laws provide legal protection for those who provide first aid in good faith and accept no compensation, it would be expected that users have certifications for AEDs use. When the patient is in cardiac arrest, it is impossible to do more harm than good because the patient will be unlikely to survive without help. Without help - the chance of surviving a cardiac arrest is between 4% to 6%. Don't be afraid your actions will only help. (good Samaritan report here)


The defibrillator's will be checked regularly but if you notice any problems with them, the boxes they are contained in or the break glass key boxes, please contact us at the numbers below asap, thank you.

086 6020 553 ... GAA Car Park unit (checked by Mike McMahon)
087 2071 1088 ... Lisheen Cross unit (checked by Ronan O'Ceallaigh)

Other members of the defib committe are John Curtin, Mary Kelly (trainer) & Nigel Moloney

This year if you require training contact 087 2071108

Defib and CPR refresher video

Speed is very important


To a person in cardiac arrest, good quality and immediate CPR is vital, furthermore if a person is in need of defibrillation and receives it withing 2 minutes the survival rate is over 80%

This reduces by 7 to 10% each minute thereafter......
