The Dublin Fire Brigade Played An Absolute Blinder Last Night With 128 Trees Down Across The County


It was a busy evening for fire brigades across the country last night as they reacted to call outs for Storm Barney.

A quick glance at the Dublin Fire Brigade‘s tweets over the past 12 hours will give you an indication of the hard work they endured…

With over 128 trees down, 13 electricity cables down they also received 52 fire calls and 184 ambulance calls throughout the course of the night.

By teaming up with the county councils in question and ESB Networks, they managed to reach all call outs, and clear most of the blocked roads.

While the weather has somewhat died down, they are warning people to watch out for the Storm Barney hangover this morning.
