Parents/guardians can accompany their child throughout the screening, which includes the following steps:
1. A personal and family history questionnaire.
2. A physical examination with a medical doctor.
3. 12-lead electrocardiogram (ECG).

Following the screening, the medical data and ECG are assessed and reported on by a Consultant Cardiologist.
• You will be able to access your results via email notification.
• Participants will be able to login and review their patient friendly report within 10 working days of the screening taking place.
• In the event of a cardiac abnormality being identified, AMS will send a copy of results to the participant’s nominated GP.
• In the event of a significant abnormality, where it may be unsafe for the participant to train / play, AMS will contact the participant’s parent / guardian by telephone and inform them of their results and advise them to follow up with their GP. AMS will send the results to the participant’s parent / guardian and their nominated GP on the same day. 


The Dillon Quirke Foundation is a registered charity in Ireland. Its mission is to raise awareness of Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS) and fund widespread cardiac screening for young people aged 12 to 18 who are involved in sports. 

On average, SADS claims 100 young lives in Ireland each year. By identifying heart conditions early through cardiac screening, the foundation aims to prevent SADS-related deaths. 

The foundation was established in honour of Dillon Quirke, who tragically collapsed during a hurling match and passed away from SADS in August 2022 at Semple Stadium Thurles. 

Dillon’s family, including his parents Dan and Hazel, along with his sisters Kellie and Shannon, set up the foundation. Their ambitious goal is to provide free life-saving cardiac screenings for 10,000 young people annually, ultimately saving lives together.
