Shillelagh-Coolboy GAA organised the installation of Defibrillators in the club in 2021 and 18 Club Coaches were trained and certified in CPR & Defibrillators and pitch side First Aid by Niamh Gaffney – Emergency First Aid. Following last year’s excellent training by Niamh our 2022 Healthy Club Project included Emergency First Aid Training for 8 parents which included focus on Paediatric Emergency Frist Aid, CPR & Defib.
Following the training a parent had an emergency with one of her children. The mother was happy to report back that thanks to the course she felt calm and confident to deal with it. Prior the training this type of accident would have proven difficult for her to cope with. Also due to the course she had purchased a First Aid kit the day before which she used during the incident. She was grateful to both the Club & Niamh for providing the training.
Shillelagh-Coolboy GAA would highly recommend Emergency First Aid. Niamh is a very professional trainer with plenty of Club and Outdoor Emergency experience and is very easy to follow and understand. “A great teacher” has been the feed back from all who have taken part. “We look forward to the refresher course for the coaches and also more Club members being trained, thanks to Niamh the Club can see the benefits Emergency First Aid Training provides.” – Shillelagh – Coolboy GAA Club
