Local First Responders stood down in Offaly

The Birr First Responder Group erected this heartfelt sign in Emmet Square, Birr over the last few days

The Birr Community Responder group was sadly stood down due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The group announced at the weekend that due to the coronavirus outbreak, the National Ambulance Service stood down all the community first responder schemes throughout Ireland.

The group wrote that they would be back when everything settled down and asked people to stay safe and “we are all in this together”.

However, they erected a heartfelt thank you to all of "our frontline staff who are there for our town and community," which they erected in Emmet Square, Birr over the last few days.
