Dublin Fire Brigade celebrates anniversary

We were in Dublin on Saturday and saw an antique Fire Truck led by horses and members of a pipe band visiting from Palm Beach, Florida (in The Porterhouse, not at Dublin castle!!) reported "Dublin Fire Brigade officially celebrates its 150th anniversary today. To mark the milestone, the brigade's Pipe Band will perform in Croke Park this afternoon at the Leinster Senior Football Championship quarter final double-header. Yesterday evening, firefighters paraded through Dublin city centre from Parnell Square up to Dublin Castle.
As part of the celebrations, Fire Services from around the country will be in the city, as well as a large delegation of firefighters from the US.
