Competitor tending to an injured manSt. John Ambulance Cork was delighted to welcome teams from Dublin to our headquarters for the Annual Cork Senior Competitions, on May 7th last.

Our Commissioner, Prof. Patrick Plunkett, also travelled down to view our competitions. Originally, the competition had been organised in an outside venue, but due to poor weather, had to be held indoors at our headquarters on Victoria Road.
