More about the Finalists
Lismore Community First Responders
The Lismore Community Responders work alongside the National Ambulance Service, responding to cardiac arrests, heart attacks, chest pain, strokes and other minor injuries. Organised by local GPs Dr. Noelle Quann and David Kiely from the Irish Red Cross, both of whom have contributed a great deal of time and hard work on a completely voluntary basis to get the scheme up and running. Their goal is to provide aid to patients within minutes of receiving a call, administering first aid, performing CPR, and utilizing defibrillators as needed. This helps maintain the chain of survival during the critical early stages until a fully equipped ambulance arrives.
The program has been in operation for a decade and would use the €2,500 donation to update its Automated External Defibrillators.
St. Anne’s Camogie and Football Club
St Anne's Camogie and Gaelic Football Club was established in 2000 and has approximately 180 members from U8 to Senior level. It's a fantastic inclusive club, their aim is to promote health, fitness, companionship, and fun through football and camogie. It's crucial to encourage young girls to continue playing sports as the dropout rate between ages 13-15 is significant. St. Anne's strives to make every session enjoyable and something to look forward to, regardless of the outcome, win, lose, or draw!".
They rely heavily on outside funding to run our club which is essential in a rural area with few other outlets for the girls to meet with their friends. Funds received would go towards the increasing costs of equipment, referee costs, jerseys, promotions and training and development.
