First responders (locally based medics who can respond to a variety of incidents) are proving to be a vital cog in the area of emergency medicine. 

Rathcormac is fortunate to have such a voluntary service and to date, they've tended to numerous instances of people in distress.

Rathcormac First Responders received a timely boost recently when they heard their organisation would receive the proceeds from a forthcoming vintage road run being organised by members of Rathcormac Vintage Club.

The run, which is in its 12th year, takes place on Sunday next (25th March) – assembling at the car boot sale site in Rathcormac at 10am. Participants can register here – the departure time is 11.30am sharp.

The event was formally launched at The Rathcormac Inn last Sunday. Here, vintage club members and first responder volunteers posed for a publicity photograph.

The Rathcormac based unit said they were delighted with the generous gesture from the vintage club. In reply, a vintage club spokesperson said they were more than happy to assist.

Refreshments will be served in The Rathcormc Inn on completion of the route.

Further details on the event can be had by contacting Martin Savage on 086-3183459.
