Generation Heroes 2018

Today we are announcing that we are looking for the next generation of young First Aiders, doers, thinkers and leaders between 14 and 16 years old from the greater Limerick City and County community. Have you got what it takes to become the next generation of heroes?


Practical First Aid

Our primary aim in your first year with us is that you will learn the basics of Practical First Aid. In a modern learning environment you will be taught the theory of these first aid emergencies before being shown practical and hands-on treatment of various medical conditions and injuries. These vary in severity from small bumps and cuts to the most serious life-threatening conditions. The final result we strive to achieve is a confident and certified young First Aider with the ability to help those in need during an emergency without risking injury to him or herself.


Irish Red Cross Youth

Once you have completed the Practical First Aid Course you will be open to various opportunities within the vast network across the Irish Red Cross, Irish Red Cross Youth and International Red Cross and Red Crescent societies. You will start as a Cadet and progress through the organisation gaining experience, confidence and new friends as you go.



The initial cost of the Practical First Aid Course is €40. Please note we have a minimum age of 14 years old and maximum age of 16 years old.
