We here in Trim would just like to express how proud we are of Philip, and wish him the best of luck as he starts his paramedic training with the national ambulance service tomorrow. He has been one of our most dedicated members for years and this has been a dream of his for a long time. We're incredibly proud Philip. We couldn't imagine anybody better suited to the job.
