Noel Harrinton is based in Sneem and needed urgent medical care in July. It would have taken several hours to get him to hospital by land. Our Air Ambulance was able to transfer him to Cork University Hospital in 25minutes. "I still remember the advanced paramedics coming in and taking complete control. They opened my shirt and did what they needed to do immediately. I call them my earth angels. That's how I feel about them, I really do!"
