The Heart of Killarney team have been bowled over by the support that they received at their coffee morning in the Killarney Oaks last Tuesday 7th August.

Speaking to Killarney Advertiser, a Heart of Killarney representative said “A huge thank you to all who helped out and supported the Heart of Ireland coffee morning. It would not have been possible without Eilís Fleming and her wonderful team who went above and beyond to help us on the day. Super Valu and Muckross House Garden Restaurant helped generously by providing the baked goods as well as the members of the Killarney Cardiac Response Unit.”

The Coffee Morning was well attended and supported by the people of Killarney including local Councillors Donal O Grady, Cllr Brendan Cronin and Mayor John Sheehan.

A total of 641.48euro was raised, which will be going towards funding the national role out campaign of AED phone-boxes nationwide. The National role out campaign has already seen Phone Box AEDs brought to Limerick, Donegal, Cork, Waterville, BallyBunnion, Westport to name just a few with Laois and Kilkenny soon to have ones in situ.

The Heart of Ireland team look forward to announcing some big news’s next week so keep an eye on their Facebook page, Heart of Ireland. The Heart of Ireland team would like to extend a sincere thanks to Kerry County Council, Killarney Gardai and the people of Killarney for continuing to support this project which has now become a nationwide success.
