Cardiac First Response Workshop in Wallis Arms Hotel

Attending the Cardiac First Response Course at Wallis Arms Hotel on Saturday 10/11/’12.   The two excellent Instructors were Tom O’Riordan (Cullen) and James Kelleher (Pound Hill, Millstreet).  Included in the very valuable one-day course was marvellously clear guidance on the administration of CPR and on how to use an automated external defibrillator (two of which are located in Millstreet – outside the Garda Station and outside the Youth Centre in West End).   Detailed information is available from James and from Tom.   Tom’s contacts:  086 817 5013 …. <email> .   We thank Billy Sheahan for taking the picture for us.   (S.R.)

Fondest greetings dear listeners and I wish you all the best on this wet and windy Tuesday Morning.

Great money was raised for great causes here again this past week. In Cullen they held a Style Coaching Evening in aid of Crumlin Hospital for sick Children. Tickets were all sold out well in advance of the night and it proved to be a gala event. We will reveal the financial outcome as soon as it comes to hand.


And still with Cullen, their Young at Heart Pre-Christmas outing takes place to the Glen Eagle Hotel, Killarney this Friday night November 16th. Bus leaving Cullen at 5.30.

Sean Radley’s Gift

I cannot say i ever see Sean Radley for  Millstreet playing hurling or gaelic football
His  gift is in making other people happy perhaps the greatest human gift of all
His thousands of images on the Millstreet Web Site viewed by Duhallow people Worldwide
