The Dublin Fire Brigade

A History of the Brigade, the Fires and the Emergencies

By Tom Geraghty, Trevor Whitehead

This is the first complete history of Dublin Fire Brigade, from its inception in 1862 to the present day. It is the story of the dedicated firefighters, officers and ambulance personnel who have provided emergency response to the people of Ireland's capital city for many generations. The Brigade has been involved in many key historical moments over the last one hundred and fifty years: the 1916 Rising, the War of Independence, and during the Second World War, the bombing of both Belfast and Dublin. The book is illustrated with 27 colour plates and over 50 black and white photographs.
