This morning.

Unidentified location, Dublin.

Broadcaster and stroke sufferer Mark Cagney launches the Irish Heart Foundation Act F.A.S.T. campaign ahead of World Stroke Day tomorrow.

Only one in five people in Ireland reportedly know the action to take in the event of a stroke – with 43% apparently unaware of any of the four key signs.

Those signs are: ‘F– Facial weakness (Can the person smile? Has their mouth or eye drooped?), A – Arm weakness (Can the person raise both arms?), S – Speech problems (Can the person speak clearly and understand what you say?) and T – Time (call for 112 or 999 if you spot any one of these signs)’.

No excuse now.
