CORBALLY residents received a very special Christmas gift this year in memory of a very special person when Ann Boland presented a defibrillator to Abbey Sarsfields GAA Club in memory of her late son, David, who played hurling with the club.

Ann holds several events every year to raise funds for the purchase of defibrillators and then donates them across the city to worthy causes.

“Donating defibrillators is a great way to remember my son every year, and highlights the importance and need to have defibrillators in local communities, I was delighted this year to donate a defibrillator to our local GAA club, she explained”.

The club intends to place the new defibrillator in a central location, making it available to the community.

Expressing the club’s thanks for the donation, Abbey Sarsfields chairman Christy McInerney said they plans to run a course in the coming months to certify users, and this will be open to the public.
