Join Our Team

The Irish Red Cross in Limerick have over two hundred Volunteers and operate a fleet of seven ambulances including two off-road ambulances across Limerick City and County. We provide first aid and ambulance cover to hundreds of events including matches and concerts at Thomond Park Stadium, the annual Great Limerick Run, large scale events in the University of Limerick as well as many more events each year.

We are currently recruiting new Members for this service in Limerick City and County. While people who already hold first aid qualifications such as Occupational First Aid, Emergency First Responder or Emergency Medical Technician are very welcome, the organisation provides full training up to Emergency Medical Technician level for its Members.

We are also recruiting Volunteer drivers for our fleet of ambulances. Drivers must be aged 25 years and over and hold a category B license. All Volunteers will be expected to undertake a training programme provided by the Irish Red Cross.
