Our volunteers gathered early on Sunday 12 June 2016 to travel to the Phoenix Park to join with volunteers from other divisions in providing First Aid cover to the SSE Airtricity Irish Runner 5 mile race.

It was not just a very early start but a very wet one. Thankfully the rain stopped and we had a lovely dry few hours.

Volunteer for Us

We are always looking for bright and enthusiastic people who enjoy team work and want to learn new skills.

St.John Ambulance is made up of volunteers from every walk in life, from those professionally involved with pre-hospital care to people who had no previous experience of first aid prior to joining the organisation.

Donate to Us

We receive no State funding. We are entirely dependent on contributions from the public and donations made to the Organisation for services rendered by our volunteer members.

All donations, however small, are therefore greatly appreciated.
