Find the Balance with alcohol – Dara Fitzpatrick

In 2007, the Irish Bishops’ Conference produced a series of videos on the theme of alcohol and the challenge of moderation. In this first part, we get an insight into the work of Irish Coast Guard helicopter pilot -Dara Fitzpatrick.Based in Waterford, Dara has worked with search and rescue for fifteen years. She explains the rudiments of the helicopter controls and stresses the importance of decision making in her job. She would not risk her job and her lifestyle by over-drinking – ‘balance is everything in this job’, she says.
