"A really good day," was how Senator Jennifer Murnane O'Connor described it as New Oak Estate residents put in a defibrillator at the Community Centre this week.

She said: "Well done to everyone involved in achieving this exceptional life saving device for the public’s use.

"A lot of hard work went on to secure this, I was glad to lend a hand when needed but it is the community there who always amaze me as they work together for the greater good."

In a post on Facebook, New Oak Community Centre said: "We aimed and we achieved what we set out to do."

The defibrillator will be monitored 24/7 by CCTV.
