US firemen Shore are happy to visit Ireland
A GROUP of US firefighters swapped the Jersey Shore for the Rebel County as they arrived in Ireland for a week-long visit yesterday.
Members of the New Jersey Firefighters Mutual Benevolent Association kicked off their trip with a visit to Cork Fire Brigade Headquarters.
They have also planned to visit Dublin and Belfast during the seven-day trip, to learn more about our culture and how Irish immigrants have impacted on US fire brigades.
NJFMBA president Eddie
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.”
