DEFIBRILLATORS IN BALLINCOLLIG
Bishopstown and District Lions Club recently very kindly donated an Automated External Defibrillator to Ballincollig.
This latest one has been installed and is located at The Maxol Service Station on the Western side of Ballincollig.
In total there are nine AEDs throughout Ballincollig.
It is important that we know exactly where these are located as some are located inside buildings.
Besides the one located at the Maxol Service Station, there is one outside Optimal Chiropractic on Station Road and one outside Sheehan Physiotherapy Exchange House near Boots Pharmacy on Main Street.
The AEDs located inside buildings are at
Castlewest Shopping Centre;
Ballincollig Rugby Club in Classis;
Ballincollig GAA Club in The Powdermills;
The Church of St Mary and St John on Station Road;
The Church of Christ Our Light in Innishmore and
Ballincollig Library on Station Road.
To gain access to the three outside 24hr Defibrillators contact 999/112 and the operator will give you the access code.
Instructions for use can be seen on the cabinets.
NATIONAL TIDY TOWNS
This week Minister Heather Humphreys T.D. and Mr. Ian Allen Managing Director of SuperValu have officially launched the SuperValu TidyTowns competition for 2021.
Although the Pandemic and subsequent lockdowns put a stop to the majority of the Tidy Towns Volunteers’ work, they still managed to remain positive and optimistic. During total lockdown, Volunteers were stood down and practically all work was halted. However, litter picking continued in many places. As lockdown restrictions eased, the scope of the work has expanded providing communities with hope of better times to come.
Now that restrictions are continuing to be lifted the country is making an effort to get back to normal. With the launching of the Tidy Towns , the Tidy Towns groups and Volunteers are determined to get stuck in and once again work to bring their areas forward.
The competition this year will be delivered in a different format to previous years. The adjudication process will be conducted remotely in an attempt to keep the health and wellbeing of Adjudicators and Volunteers to the forefront.
Entry to the competition will be done electronically.
Closing date for the competition will be Friday July 2nd, 2021.
Adrian spent two days cleaning the steps and path that leads from behind Westgate to Community Drive.
A fantastic job was done.
