Thurles Order Of Malta Annual Collections

Thurles Order of Malta Ambulance CorpsMr Gerard Fogarty, Parnell Street, Thurles reports:-

Order of Malta Collections.
Order of Malta Ireland Ambulance Corps Thurles would like to thank those who contributed so generously to their annual collection recently, in the Thurles, Gortnahoe-Glengoole and Holycross-Ballycahill parishes.

Collections will be taken up next weekend after all masses in the Moycarkey / Littleton / Two-Mile-Borris parish. It should be noted that all funds are used locally for the upkeep of the unit and towards its new ambulance.

Members of Thurles Order of Malta Ambulance Corps and its Cadet Corps, with colleagues from Nenagh, Cashel, Limerick and Dundrum, pictured here in Semple Stadium on last weekend.

Officer-In-Charge Ms Catherine O’Loughlin has expressed her great pride in the unit, this week, after a very busy weekend in the local GAA calendar.

Ms O’Loughlin stated, “Our members are exceptionally  well trained and thankfully all the matches went off without any major incident. We have recently completed our own on-site operational training, in Semple Stadium, to be prepared for any future emergency incident that might occur. We are grateful to the public for their generous support, allowing us to continuously upgrade our emergency ambulance fleet and equipment, and to keep them taxed etc, and fully maintained in pristine condition.”

Recent difficulties with our unit telephone have now been rectified and we can be contacted about ‘First Aid Courses’; ‘Event Cover’ and ‘Transport’, as per usual, on Mobile Telephone No. 087 2390111.
