Galway Salthill Rotary Club


Galway Salthill Rotary Club
recently presented a cheque to Neil Johnson, CEO of Croí in memory of their longstanding member, the late Benny O’Connor ❤️

The donation received has added a fourth automated external defibrillator (AED) to Salthill and is centrally located beside Salthill car park on the wall of the toilet block facing the sea.

“The Galway Salthill Rotary Club through its Kick the Wall collection box embedded in the wall at Blackrock has been a considerable success. For the last eleven years it has enabled the club to support local charities through the generosity of the Galway public, the defibrillator being an example” Pat Hobbert, President Galway Salthill Rotary.

Croí would like to take this opportunity to thank the O’Connor family and Galway Salthill Rotary Club for their generosity and support, and Galway City Council for facilitating the location of this lifesaving medical equipment 👏🏻

An AED, or automated external defibrillator, is used to help those experiencing sudden cardiac arrest. It’s a sophisticated, yet easy-to-use, medical device that can analyse the heart’s rhythm and, if necessary, deliver an electrical shock, or defibrillation, to help the heart re-establish an effective rhythm.
