Run by heart patients and carers, its objective is to help people to return to living as full a life as possible.

Sharing any worries you may have about your heart with others who have experienced the same things can help remove fear and stress you may be experiencing.

We have information and support available that will help you to make the best plan for your heart. There is support here for YOU.

Heartbeat Killarney Kerry Cardiac Support Group meets on the last Tuesday of every month (except December) at 8pm at our new meeting place at the Community Meeting Room which is located beside the Church of the Resurrection, Park Road, Killarney, V93 WN32.

So important"I was lucky that she was there and that she recognised straight away what it was""

Former RTE weatherman, John Doyle, was preparing to travel to Galway one morning. His wife Joan was waiting in the car with the engine running and came to look for him.

Unfortunately, she found him collapsed on the bathroom floor unable to move. He was having a stroke. It was thanks to Joan’s F.A.S.T. actions that John was taken to James’s Hospital in Dublin and received emergency thrombolysis treatment, allowing him to make a full recovery."

The 2 winners of today's raffle draw hamper prizes are Eilish Myers and Anne O'Keeffe. Well done to you both and we will be in contact with you to collect your hamper.

A massive thank you to the Killarney Outlet Centre for allowing us to run our fundraiser there over the last 2 Saturdays and to all our volunteers who have helped over the 4 days and more to organise and run this event. Thank you to all our sponsors for prizes and most of all thank you to everyone who helped us with our fundraising for a new AED (Automated External Defibrillator) through purchases of items and raffle tickets.

The raffle was the last deed of an action packed day! Congratulations to the winners of those super hampers. I want to thank all those who donated a myriad of items to our RID & BId days. The army of helpers who worked so hard for HeartBeat over the last 2 weeks thank you! It would not have happened without you. To those businesses who contributed the icing on the cake to our wonderful hampers we say a big THANK YOU. To Breda of Kerry's Eye The Outlook The Advertiser and The Kerryman who all helped so much to get our message out there your support was appreciated. To "Team Outlet Centre" Paul & Noreen you both were amazing with your help and advice on both days. A special mention is more than due to Nurse Anna who was on hand on both days to take blood pressure and chat to those who needed health advice. Finally to all of you who came along and bought, contributed or donated to HeartBeat your efforts were invaluable as we can now purchase the AED (portable external defibrillator) that we need OUR FIRST HALL MEETING TAKES PLACE AT THE MEETING ROOM BESIDE THE CHURCH OF THE RESURRECTION ON TUESDAY NOVEMBER 30th. CARDIOLOGIST Dr.GRACE O'CARROLL WILL BE OUR SPEAKER and ALL ARE WELCOME. Masks & Vaccine certs will be the order of the day. (Time 8pm).
