Red Cross Society
A society with a difference: a society that makes a difference!
Maynooth University Irish Red Cross Society is at the forefront of pioneering medical service provision and duty of care to all members of Maynooth University and the wider community. We operate a broad range of services, including providing Medical coverage for MSU during Fresher's week, Christmas Day and the Beach Ball. We also provide event coverage for numerous clubs and societies during their intervarsity's and sports days. Our members also avail of the opportunity to experience forming part of the medical team at festivals and concerts such as, LIFE, Longitude and Electric Picnic each summer.
Our primary aim is to take students and educate them in first-aid techniques, skills and practices, with the aim of giving them experience during some of the smaller events we cover. We also operate social care services by assisting members within the wider Maynooth community and offering therapeutic hand care to those in need and by assisting elder members of the community access and complete local social activities.
We pride ourselves on our inclusive nature, and our humility to our community service. There is never any issue to large or small that we feel we cannot cope with. We encourage you all to join us at one of our training events on Tuesdays, 7:00pm in Arts Block, Classroom E.
