Meanwhile, Kilrush Station Officer Martin Cahill received a Long Service Award for 30 years of service to Clare County Fire and Rescue Service.

Congratulating the recipients, Minister of State and Clare T.D. Tony Killeen said: "The awards are a gesture of the appreciation of the people of Clare for the magnificent work these fire service personnel have done throughout their careers, which has helped all of us feel safer in our homes. Significantly, the ceremony is also the State’s way of expressing its gratitude for the huge contribution they have made towards the security of its citizens."

"The commitment and professionalism of these long serving fire fighters is indicative of the highly experienced personnel employed by Clare County Fire and Rescue Service": added the Clare T.D. who is a former Minister of State, with special responsibility for the fire service.

Minister Killeen also praised the Fire Services Council, which hosts the awards ceremony each year.

"The Council, through its central training programme, continues to provide command and control training for all officer ranks and specialist training in responding to road traffic accidents, hazardous materials incidents and command and control for ship fire-fighting while in port. The Council also provides appropriate courses in fire safety engineering for suitably qualified fire service personnel. This suite of training courses supplements the training provided locally within fire authorities": he stated.
