CPR Course

Western Gaels extends its thanks to all our club members who took part in the CPR/First Responder course which was held in the clubhouse on Monday evening last. Thanks to Kathleen O’Connor and Maura Lowry who delivered this very worthwhile course. If there are members that could not attend on Monday night last and would like to complete the course then please contact John Freeman on 086 8320107 and we can try to arrange another course if the numbers are there. Its a very worthwhile course to have so we would encourage as many members as possible to complete it.
