Campaign to highlight local AEDs in Killarney

The Killarney Cardiac Response Unit in conjunction with Michael Linehan, Killarney Heartsafe group, have been highlighting the locations of the 16 public access AEDs in Killarney.

One of its members, Kevin O’Leary, said that these lifesaving automated external defibrillators (AEDs) are available 24/ 7 to the public.

“However,” he said, “it is essential that the public are aware of the nearest device and the simple steps needed to save a life.”

Friends come together for new business adventure

A trio of friends, who lost their jobs last year, opened the doors of their own business last week in Killarney town bringing their years of experience in catering to bear.

Sheena O’Donoghue, Jonathan Casey and Sheila McCarthy have just opened Kerry Catering Supplies at Countess Shopping Centre, Park Road in Killarney.

The three friends have worked together for years, day in, day out, and had become almost like a little family - so it was a big shock when they learned that the catering business they worked for was closing permanently last year.
