first_imgPictured: Jim Frain, Letterkenny Gaels GAA, Michael McGinty, Letterkenny Rugby Club and Jeremy Worth, Donegal OrthodonticsJeremy Worth is a man with a big heart.The veteran player with Letterkenny Rugby Club and an honorary Life Club Member, still plays occasional 2nds or veteran matches.Jeremy, along with Robert Love was instrumental in bringing the “All Blacks” to Letterkenny Rugby Club and Donegal in 2005. And now he has continued that big-hearted sponsorship which is possibly the most important to date.That’s because the well-known orthodontist has kindly sponsored a defibrillator which will be used by Letterkenny Rugby Club and Letterkenny Gaels.Jeremy said he is delighted to be part of such a great sporting community like the Letterkenny Rugby Club and having his own business, Donegal Orthodontics based in Ballyraine, Letterkenny, allows him to continue to provide support to the club and give something back to his local community.“When the Letterkenny Gaels and the Letterkenny Rugby Club joined forces to build an absolutely outstanding community & sporting facility on the outskirts of Letterkenny at the Glebe & Dave Gallaher Memorial Park, I thought it fitting being in the healthcare and medical industry, to donate a “Defibrillator” to both clubs. “I am delighted that today it is officially installed and could possibly help someone in need and may save a life”, says Jeremy. “I am delighted that both the players and visitors of the Letterkenny Rugby Club and the Letterkenny Gaels GAA can both benefit from this”.“Fit young sportsmen can occasionally collapse with SADS (sudden adult death syndrome) with tragic consequences. Older players are at risk of Cardio Vascular Disease, which is Ireland’s biggest killer with in the region of 10,000 deaths each year. 6,000 are from sudden cardiac arrest and 70% of these occur outside of hospital. It is imperative that in todays busy sporting world, sports clubs and organisations are equipped and prepared to respond to these types of emergencies. Hopefully this will never be needed!”Speaking on behalf of both the Letterkenny Rugby Club and The Letterkenny Gaels, Michael McGinty and Jim Frain said they were delighted to accept this defibrillator on behalf of their clubs, players and members and extended a huge thanks to Jeremy for his generous donation and ongoing support. An official launch will be held soon.Pictured: Jim Frain, Letterkenny Gaels GAA, Michael McGinty, Letterkenny Rugby Club and Jeremy Worth, Donegal OrthodonticsJEREMY’S BIG DONATION THAT COULD JUST SAVE A LIFE! was last modified: November 3rd, 2015 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Jeremy WorthLETTERKENNY RUGBY CLUBlast_img
