Thanks to the funds raised through the many events organised by the Wheel Inn, Ballyouskill, a defibrillator has now been purchased and installed outside the pub. A number of people have already been trained in the use of the defibrillatore. Many thanks to Michael Wadding, Kilkenny Ambulance and Charlie Foley, paramedic for their time.
