Defibrillators for Ballygawley and Sooey

A recent fundraising drive between the communities of both Ballygawley and Sooey will soon see the purchase of three defibrillators for the area.

The cardiac equipment will be placed in three separate locations across both townlands.

Almost 12 thousand euro has been raised through a number of fundraisers which have taken place over the past two months.

The life-saving equipment will be place at McTiernan’s Shop in Ballygawley, Sooey Hall and Kilross National School.

Member of the Ballygalway/Sooey Defibrillator Working Group Thomas Walsh outlines the advantages of having such equipment close-by.
