St John Ambulance Ireland joins with the wider St John International family in celebrating St John Day each year on 24 June.
As we celebrate St John Day we look at who we are today. We are a family, with all the diversity and differences of any family. We have volunteers from all ages, cultures, nationalities, and genders. We have the rebellious teens, the eccentric uncles, the strict parents. We have volunteers from all areas of society from hospital consultants to young people in primary school. What we all have in common is the desire, willingness and training to give support and assistance to the sick and injured in our community. So today we give thanks for each person who contributes to St John from our volunteers to our exceptional office staff for all they offer. Happy St John Day to all
