Public CPR Demonstrations

Our Dalkey CFR volunteers have been working very hard over the past few weeks providing CPR & Defibrillator demonstrations to members of the public at local events.

When a person collapses and their heart stops beating correctly, early CPR started by bystanders is one of the single biggest interventions that can greatly increase the chance of that person surviving.

By teaching CPR & defibrillator skills to members of the public we are strengthening the Chain of Survival in our community!

We were recently at the Seapoint Rugby Club Blitz and St Patrick’s Church Fete, teaching CPR to people of all ages. (Photos Below)

CPR is a very simple skill, but it saves lives everyday!

If you’d like to do some CPR training yourself or if you like us to organise a CPR Demonstration at an event locally, please get in touch.



The Chain of Survival. These are the simple steps that help save lives everyday!

Recruiting Volunteers NOW!

We’re delighted to announce that we’re now recruiting new volunteers! Come along to our information night on Wednesday 7th October in Fitzpatrick’s Castle Hotel to learn more.

We’ll be kicking off at 8pm, with presentations from our current responders, and there’ll be plenty of opportunities to ask questions & talk to the Responders. No prior medical experience / knowledge required so come along to see how you can get involved.  There’ll also be plenty of volunteers on hand providing CPR demonstrations!

A special thanks to Fitzpatrick’s Castle for providing the venue!

Bank of Ireland donate AED to Dalkey CFR


Adele Delaney (Bank of Ireland, Dun Laoghaire) presents the new AED to Dalkey CFR volunteers.

On Tuesday 2nd of December, the Dalkey Community First Responders were delighted to receive a defibrillator which was kindly donated by Bank of Ireland. This defibrillator will be mounted on Dalkey Main St and be available 24 hours a day to aid members of the public who suffer a cardiac arrest. Early CPR and defibrillation are critical in saving lives and this defibrillator will help ensure members of the Dalkey community receive this life saving treatment in the minutes after a cardiac arrest.

Over the next few weeks, Dalkey CFR will be providing CPR and Defibrillator training for all members of the community who wish to learn this life-saving skill! If you’d like to be involved, please get in touch with us!

We are always looking for new volunteers in Dalkey CFR, so if you feel you could help in any way please contact us. (No prior experience required!)


Here are some photos from the presentation:
