The incident has been reported to Cahir Gardai and they have already been out to inspect the cabinet and have removed the 2 rocks used in the incident for forensic analysis.

The club is urge anyone with information on this incident to contact Cahir Garda Station.

They says unfortunately due to the damage to the cabinet they’ve had to remove the defibrillator until repairs/replacement has been carried out.

Newcastle Community First Responders says aswell as the cabinet being broken by a stone the AED was turned on and left on until it was discovered on Monday morning by one of our CFR’s, this means the glass and battery will need to be replaced, needless to say this AED is now out of service due to some mindless behavior by some people.
