Kfm Tribute to Johnny Doyle: now Podcast!

johnny-doyle-390x285.jpg Johnny Doyle joined Clem Ryan in the Kfm studio on Tuesday, April 8th in a tribute to his career.

In Part 1, Johnny retraces his career from his debut in the league against Down in 1999.  As well as multiple texts and phone calls from listeners, the five managers for whom Johnny played: Mick O'Dwyer, Padraigh Nolan, John Crofton, Kieran McGeeney and Jason Ryan all paid eloquent tribute to the man who spent 15 seasons in the Kildare jersey, while Phyllis Fennin - mother of former star forward Tadhg - recited her own written poetic tribute. Young Jennifer Malone from Clane, who is Johnny's greatest fan came into studio with her mother Donna to hug Johnny (see our Facebook photos!) and present him with a beautiful bouquet of Lilies (courtesy of Shane Fitzgerald's Carraig Flowers, Leixlip and Maynooth).

In part 2, Johnny brings us through recent years.  Also, we were joined by Kildare county Board chairman, John McMahon, while Johnny's mother Phyllis paid an emotional tribute to her son, plus more poetry and fans messages.

See podcast section of this site for Tribute programme.

The full 80 minute tribute  will be repeated on this Sunday's Sportsbeat from 2:30.

aed.jpg Kfm's defibrillator competition winner!!!

Suzanne Connolly from Newbridge Family Resource was in Kfm Radio reception this morning to collect her Zoll AED defibrillator from Medilink Services. Suzanne is pictured here with Karl Ryan, Brand Manager, Medilink Services (left) and Michael Murphy, professional health and safety trainer from Kildare Town (right).

When a cardiac arrest occurs, the fact is that only half the victims will need a shock. The other half requires high-quality CPR.

ZOLL’s AED Plus Defibrillator features Real CPR Help, a tool that is able to actually see what you are doing and provide feedback to help you do it well.

More than a Defibrillator, it’s a Full-Rescue AED

Kfm wants to increase the awareness of Defibrillator use to save lives in every part of Kildare.
