Defibs to school in Donegal

The defibrillators are presented to staff at Scoil Aodh Rua agus Nuala in Donegal town.

A primary school in Donegal town has taken possession of two defibrillators free of charge thanks to a local company who sponsored them.
The defibs were presented to Scoil Aodh Rua agus Nuala by Nikola Britton, Managing Director of Britton Insurance, Donegal town.
Nicola, after the presentation, told the Democrat the simple reason why the company had made the move:
“We felt they should have them, we have offered Defibrillators to all the schools in the locality and our view is that this is something that could prove very useful.”
With 32 adults and 250 children in the schools two campuses, Scoil Aodh Rua agus Nuala is certainly a hive of activity and an ideal place to have these Defibrillators, a point not lost on school principal, Mary Culleton.
“When this offer was made to us by Nicola, we were really delighted by her generous offer.
“We of course gladly accepted and we are making sure all staff have the necessary training, should we need to use them. Obviously we hope we never have to use them, but having them here is very reassuring,” Mary added.
