- June Woods - Malahide - firstaid course

I found the course extremely benefical --- whilest I would probably still panic in an emergency, I would feel more confident to deal with a first aid crisis than before & would I think feel more confident knowing what to do. The course content was very relevant --- I would recommend to others.

- Mary Nohilly - Carmelite Centre - firstaid course

Yes it was a lovely party! A couple of parents have already asked for your your details as their kids really enjoyed it. Rosa was a bit quiet on the day but has since said: " it was the best party ever." Thank you to Liza for a great day!

- Irene Lewis - Rosa's 6th Birthday Party - War Memorial Hall Terenure - playparty course

Thank you for your mail regarding the First Aid Course. I thoroughly enjoyed the course and thought it very worthwhile. Our Instructor, Trisha, was fantastic. She is very professional and has a vast amount of experience and knowledge. I have already recommended the course to anyone I have spoken to since.
