I am a Registered General Nurse with 20 years experience in Theatre and Endoscopy Departments. I am a qualified Occupational First Aid Instructor and a Pre Hospital Emergency Care Council (PHECC) instructor and an American Heart Association (AHA) Instructor. In 2010 I started Co Louth's first Community Cardiac First Responders Group in Haggardstown & Blackrock, where we raised over €10,000 and purchased five defibrillators for the community. I personally have voluntarily trained 100 responders in the locality. I also deliver the FETAC Level 5 course for carers. I am a FETAC Level 6 Manual Handling and People Handling Instructor.
