Quotes

HE is on the cusp of his 80th birthday, but broadcasting legend Jimmy Magee has vowed that he will never retire. "I'd like to do a lot of things over again. I would go on a final trip around all the places in the world that I loved most of all and do them all again and live there for awhile" he added
Pharmacist Bernard Duggan said, "The introduction of this service through pharmacies could directly reduce the number of deaths from heart disease each year in Ireland. The average community pharmacy is open 50% longer than GP clinics, which increases the accessibility and cost-effectiveness of providing such a service for patients."
"Think FAST - if you feel very definite first effects, in your face, arms or speech, you need to pick up the telephone" said Mr Bartley
"Nobody thinks that these things can happen to them until it does, said Doctor Sinead Beirne"
