Cumann Naomh Pádraig in Clonbur have set up a fundraising campaign to raise money for a community defibrillator.
The life-saving piece of equipment will be located inside the entrance of the GAA grounds at Páirc Seoighe and it will be available to everyone in the community.
Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, the club’s fundraising attempts have been severely restricted over the last 17 months, which means it now requires donations from the public to buy the defibrillator.
The cost of the defibrillator is approximately €2,000 and all funds donated over €1,500 will be donated to the UNICEF programme Get a Vaccine, Give a Vaccine.
This UNICEF campaign encourages Irish people to give a vaccine when they get their vaccine, and drives home the message that nobody is safe until everyone is safe, and no child is safe until everyone they rely on is safe.
The official GoFundMe campaign can be found here.
