It's been confirmed this morning that Monaghan Civil Defence and Cú Chulainn Blood Bikes are also due to benefit.

Further funding has been provided for community first responders in County Monaghan.

On Friday, local Minister Heather Humphreys confirmed to Northern Sound that funding of around €37,000 had been secured to purchase a second transport vehicle for Crocus Monaghan.

The funding, under the CLÁR Programme, purchases vehicles that will be used to transport cancer patients, blood samples and medicine for terminally ill children.
