The 2016 Winners
The overall winner of the 2016 Citizenship Challenge was the Killimordaly Kiltullagh Foróige Club in Galway. This group mobilised their local community in the use of defibrillators via hands-on courses, information leaflets and battery maintenance. They raised a huge amount of money and created massive local awareness around defibrillators and how to use them.
