Kilkenny hurling personalities lend support to South East campaign for 24/7 cardiac care

Some of the biggest names in local hurling have been adding their support to the campaign for 24/7 cardiac care for the region.

Health Equality for the South East has organised a march to take place this Saturday – it gets underway at 1:30pm in Dublin’s Garden of Remembrance.

Kilkenny Senior hurling manager Brian Cody is among those to record a message of support for the group saying “The reality is, a 24/7 cardiac care service must be delivered for the South East region”

Henry Shefflin, who recently led Ballyhale Shamrocks to All Ireland glory is also backing the group in their campaign saying its an issue affecting him and his family and describing the level of care available for people in the region as ‘unacceptable’.

Tommy Walsh also urged people to come out in force and support the march this weekend.
