Stoneybatter locals have been getting training on how to use their new community defibrillator.

The Heart of Ireland project has installed the life-saving device in a former phone box at Stoneybatter Green with the help of community activists and city council workers.

The defibrillator can  deliver a life-saving electric shock to a heart attack victim, and can be operated by a first aider.

Deputy Lord Mayor Mary Fitzpatrick, along with Sinn Féin President Mary Lou McDonald, Finance Minister Paschal Donohue, and local councillors Ray McAdam and Janice Boylan came to the grand opening.

Resident Alan Ecock was a key organiser of the project.

He says the defibrillator is now ready for use in a cardiac emergency.
