Kilkerrin United & Kilkerrin-Clonberne Defibrillator Group have teamed up.

Kilkerrin United in conjunction with Kilkerrin-Clonberne Defibrillator Group are asking for your support to provide a defibrillator and training for our local community.

We have been selected to take part in the Mrs. Brown's Boys FAI Heart Care Programme which aims to ensure that everyone playing football in Ireland is within 3 minutes of a lifesaving AED.

That's why we've started this fundraising page to raise money for an AED (Automated External Defibrillator) for our club. Mrs Brown's Boys'/FAI are supporting us with an initial donation of €1250, and our target is to also raise €1250.

An AED (Automated External Defibrillator) is a sophisticated, life-saving device that can help save the life of someone experiencing sudden cardiac arrest. They are easy to use and portable, with clear step-by-step instructions.

When applied, an AED automatically checks the heart’s rhythm. If it recognises a life-threatening rhythm, the AED enables the user to deliver a shock to the heart which will allow it to return to beating normally. If a life-threatening rhythm is not detected, the AED will not permit a shock to be delivered.

Thank you for your support.
