A new defibrillator has been installed at Myos pub in Castleknock, thanks to the collaboration of the local tidy towns committee and local business leaders, writes Rose Barrett.

Castleknock Tidy Towns regularly partners with business leaders to help make Castleknock a better place to live, work, play, shop and visit.

“Together, we are making a difference,” said Declan Mescall of Castleknock TT.  “It’s inspiring when business leaders come together to support a life-saving initiative for their local communities in a very meaningful way.”

He continued: “On behalf of Castleknock TT, we wish to publicly express our grateful appreciation to local residents David Hall and Susan Wiseman, owners of Lifeline Ambulance Service Ireland, for generously donating a defibrillator to the Castleknock community.”

The defibrillator is the only one in the neighbourhood which is accessible 24/7/365. Instructions on how to use it are given when the unit is activated.
