Croi active in Athenry - December 1997


Local Heart Charity Croi which fundraises to support the Heart Unit at U.C.H.G. and to lead the fight against Heart Disease in the west of Ireland has increased its presence in Athenry over the past number of months.

The first Croi Cardiac Club in the County was established in Athenry earlier this year and has proven a great success. In fact, its the model on which all other Croi Cardiac Clubs throughout the County are based on. Anybody interested in further details on the Croi Cardiac Clubs should contact the Croi Nurse at (091)……….
