Other members in attendance were Matt Dowling, Ciarán Dowling, Lorcan Ryan, Sean Keane, Jim Nolan, Amby Moloney. The RAMS in Rhythm fundraise for the purchase of a defibrillator, for the village of Newcastle Co Dublin.
The RAMS in Rhythm sang at the Spar Supermarket Newcastle, and at Avoca Rathcoole, prior to Christmas. The RAMS in Rhythm sang, and performed, and the collection was done by the 4 District Responders. With the generosity of Brian & Karan Kelly, who purchased the defibrillator for the use of the community. This defibrillator is in situ at their shop in Newcastle.
