Following today’s tragic event in Marian Park, Dundalk, when 18 year old Conor Bryne collapsed in his garden after taking what appeared to be a massive heart attack but has yet to be confirmed, Councillor Tómas Sharkey has called on the National Ambulance Service to review how ambulance vehicles and crews were configurated today in the area.
The incoming member of the Regional Health Forum has also asked for the response times to the 999 call by both fire and ambulance services to be accounted for. An Irish Corp helicopter landed in the field at the Clanns around 2:20 pm today to airlift the teenager to hospital.
Unfortunately Conor Bryne passed away. Tómas Sharkey, a fervent opponent to the closure and stripping of services of the Louth Hospital said “this is a tragic time for the family and the sympathy and support of the whole community goes out to them.”
