Don­nelly told the Ir­ish Mir­ror: “In few places is the in­flu­ence of gen­er­a­tions of Ir­ish im­mi­grants more clear than in the fire ser­vice.

“Our time in Ire­land will cel­e­brate that and it is also an op­por­tu­nity for us to share best prac­tices, train­ing tips and other crit­i­cal in­for­ma­tion.”
