Round­wood Com­mu­nity First Re­spon­ders Group was launched in Jan­uary 2005.

We are a group of vol­un­teers trained as a min­i­mum in ba­sic life sup­port and the use of an au­to­mated ex­ter­nal de­fib­ril­la­tor (AED), who at­tends a po­ten­tially life threat­en­ing emer­gency be­fore an am­bu­lance ar­rives.

In most cases the CFR will be on the scene within 3-9 min­utes and treat­ing the ca­su­alty.

This early at­ten­dance could lit­er­ally mean the dif­fer­ence be­tween life and death es­pe­cially when the per­son has suf­fered a car­diac ar­rest and re­quires im­me­di­ate de­fib­ril­la­tion.

Since we be­gan we have at­tended just over 30 call outs. We would like to have some more vol­un­teers to en­sure a 24-7 ser­vice.

If you would like to join or re­ceive more in­for­ma­tion con­tact Mary 0876799082, Jac­inta 0861970359 or Mar­ion 0872502201 and you will re­ceive an in­for­ma­tion pack

Our un­der 18 lads team played against Ash­ford in the semi-fi­nal of the mi­nor B Foot­ball Shield last week and af­ter trail­ing for the first half bounced back to win by a comfortable mar­gin and gain a place in the Shield Fi­nal. The op­po­si­tion for this is Rath­new on Mon­day 27th Oc­to­ber. Full de­tails of this match in next week’s pa­per and we wish our boys the best of luck.

Most of the ju­ve­nile com­pe­ti­tions have com­pleted for the sea­son. The man­agers have now com­menced their win­ter train­ing pro­gramme so check with your man­ager when your ses­sion takes place and keep fit for the win­ter. We wish Eoghan Marah a speedy re­cov­ery to an in­jury he sus­tained at train­ing last week and hope to see him back in action soon.
