Air Ambulance Helicopter to get the Green Light

Finally it looks like the Air Ambulance based in Rathcoole is to get the go-ahead:

“Minister for Health, Simon Harris, TD, announced today (Friday) that a new aeromedical service in the South will be launched in the coming weeks following the signing of a Service Level Agreement between the HSE and Irish Community Rapid Response.
Welcoming the news, Minister Harris said “I am delighted that a new aeromedical service in the South will commence shortly. I would like to thank the HSE National Ambulance Service and Irish Community Rapid Response for its commitment in developing this Service Level Agreement and ensuring the necessary clinical and corporate governance arrangements are such that the new service will be safe, robust and sustainable.
The service will see the establishment of a charitably funded Helicopter Emergency Medical Service in the South, which will operate from Rathcoole Aerodrome, just northeast of Millstreet, County Cork. The service will complement the existing aeromedical services and improve aeromedical access to the South of Ireland …”

Exiles: A journey through Ireland from Beara to Ballycastle

In August 2018, after walking the gruelling 700 mile Ireland Way, Dermot Breen finally arrived at his late wife’s graveside in Ballycastle, honouring a solemn promise to complete the walk in her memory and also to raise funds for Cancer Research UK.

The journey took Omagh born and Belfast based writer, Dermot, over nine weeks to complete – six weeks walking and over three weeks recovering from injury, and included a night in Millstreet along the way. He has now told his fascinating story in his latest book, ‘Exiles: A journey through Ireland from Beara to Ballycastle’….

“… standing in the River Blackwater at the Bowing crossing, cooling my feet after a long day’s walk. I stayed with the wonderful Eileen O’Riordan while in Millstreet”

She cared deeply for her patients, with much compassion. She made her home in New York, and married the love of her life, Jeremiah Dennehy from Millstreet, County Cork, Ireland. Together they enjoyed a life filled with kindness. They were as devoted to each other as they were to their faith. She will be missed and remembered for her quick wit, heart of gold, generosity and loving ways towards anyone she met. She was a true gem and great role model to her many nieces and nephews and their families. She will be certainly missed by treasured niece, Mary MacIntyre-Provataris, who cared for her for the past number of years, ensuring that Catherine remained in and enjoyed the comfort of her own home. Her Funeral Mass will be held Saturday, June 8th at 10 a.m. in Corpus Christi Church, Woodside, N.Y. May her journey onward be as fantastic as she was.
