Bystander CPR Saves Lives!

As reported in the Media: a gentleman, Noel Tobin, collapsed in Marlay Park on St Stephen’s Day when his heart stopped beating moments before he was due to start a run with his friends.

Two of the bystanders, Erica & Peter, who helped save Noel’s life were recently trained in CPR by Dalkey CFR as part of our public CPR Demonstrations.

Who could have known they’d need their to use their skills so soon! Congratulations to everyone involved, and we wish Noel a speedy recovery!

Well done and thank you to Dalkey CFR Volunteers, Joe & Olwyn, who organised the training session for the Marlay ParkRunners. (Photos here)

Launch of Dalkey’s Defibrillator!

Launch of Dalkey CFR's Public Access DefibrillatorToday marked a very special occasion for Dalkey CFR volunteers as we launched our first Public Access Defibrillator in Dalkey village.

The Automated External Defibrillator (AED) is located on the wall outside Ouzos Restaurant on Castle Street, Dalkey, and is available 24/7 in the case of an emergency.

The aim of this AED is to strengthen the Chain of Survival in Dalkey. When someone’s heart stops beating, every second counts!  Starting CPR early and using a defibrillator greatly increases the chances of that person surviving.

We had a fantastic turn out from the local community for the Official Launch today, with locals of all ages participating  in our CPR and defibrillator demonstrations.

We’d like to thank everyone who made this possible:

  • Padraic Hanley from Ouzos Restaurant for providing us with the fantastic location,
  • Our local sparky William McHugh from McHugh Electric for Mounting the AED and
  • All the members of the public who donated money to pay for the protective cabinet


IMG_9854If you missed out on our CPR Demos today get in touch with us. We’re happy to run Free CPR Demos at local events or provide formal CPR & Defibrillator Training at a reduced cost for local groups.

And of course, new volunteers are always welcome, you don’t need any previous experience, we’ll provide you with all the training you need!

Invitation to Launch of Dalkey’s Defibrillator!

Poster - Dalkey DefibrillatorDalkey CFR are delighted to invite you to the unveiling of a new Public Access Defibrillator in Dalkey this Saturday, 21st May at 1pm.

This Automated External Defibrillator (AED) signifies a massive step in strengthening the Chain of Survival in Dalkey. When someone’s heart stops beating, every second counts!  Starting CPR early and using a defibrillator greatly increases the chances of that person surviving.

We are mounting Dalkey’s first Public Access Defibrillator on Dalkey Main Street, this coming Saturday and we need your help in spreading the word.

The AED will be mounted outside Ouzo’s Restaurant  and will be freely available for use by members of the public and first responders in the event of a cardiac arrest in the town.

We will be holding demonstrations on CPR & how to use the AED throughout the day and would love to see you all there.
