Bridget Delaney of the Killarney Cardiac Response Unit has been unveiled as the MACE Unsung Heroes Overall Community Award winner in recognition of the support for the National Ambulance Service in Killarney in responding to calls relating to heart attacks, cardiac arrests, choking and stroke.

The MACE Unsung Heroes Overall Community Award is reserved for a person or team who do truly remarkable things for the betterment of their community.

The nationwide MACE Unsung Heroes Community Awards were initially launched in 2020 by Ireland rugby star Johnny Sexton to stimulate community spirit. Following its remarkable success MACE was excited to go to the country once again this year and ask communities to nominate that special someone who goes the extra mile to make a difference, so they get the recognition they deserve.

Bridget Delaney is one of the members who was nominated for a MACE Unsung Heroes award and has been a volunteer with the responders group since it first started in 2015. She has been involved in many roles including training, treasurer, assisting other schemes but all this is secondary to the volume of calls and the dedication she and the team have given to the community and given assistance to those in need no matter what time day or night.

“I want to congratulate Bridget and all those in Killarney Cardiac Response Unit for the heroic work they do. It must be a great source of relief to those in Killarney knowing that this group of dedicated volunteers are there looking after them and looking out for them. I also want to congratulate Juliette, Eileen and the team in MACE Kilgarvan for their being presented with the MACE Store Team Award," said MACE Sales Director Peter Dwan.

In total, MACE presented five category Unsung Heroes Community awards with each individual category winner being rewarded with cheques for €1,000. Each winner was contacted personally by Johnny Sexton to inform them of their win.

As the overall MACE Unsung Heroes Community Award winner, Bridget of the Killarney Cardiac Response Unit was presented with a cheque for €5,000.

The successes of the Kerry, Munster and All-Ireland Fleadh’s were celebrated with Kilcummin CCÉ members, their families and friends in the clubhouse in Kilcummin on Sunday night.

The talent within the branch was clearly evident with a packed trophies table. Indeed some of the successes over the last number of months were replayed in a relaxed, jovial atmosphere that meant that all attending had a great night’s entertainment.

“We had demonstrations of winning sets across all age groups and then we moved onto the musicians who pulled out all the stops to entertain the large crowd, packed into the clubhouse,” Derek O’Leary, Kilcummin CCÉ PRO, told the Killarney Advertiser.

John Moriarty, who has recently retired from his role of Supervisor with Kilcummin Rural Development was acknowledged with a presentation to reflect the outstanding work that he has done to enhance and grow Kilcummin Comhaltas over his 25 years in his role, he added.

“Much thanks and praise was also offered to Mary, Adrian and Conor Moriarty, all involved in the progression of dancing and music within the Kilcummin branch. The music and entertainment continued with Helen Kerins and Denis Crowley late into the night. We’re looking forward to next year already!”
