Members of Dublin Fire Brigade have once again come to the rescue as they helped safely deliver a baby girl just in time for Christmas.

Baby Aubrey was delivered in the early hours of Sunday morning by two members of a DFB ambulance.

She was born in an ambulance from the Rathfarnham unit in south Dublin with the help of firefighters Sarah and Niall.

Gardaí also offered a helping hand by managing the traffic while little Aubrey was being brought into the world.

DFB has been busy with baby deliveries this year.

Just last month members of the Tallaght unit assisted the National Ambulance Service in the delivery of a baby who was born one month premature.

Officers from Dolphin's Barn also lent a hand when Lisa Connolly (33) went into labour with her second child outside Kevin Street garda station.

The couple got stuck in traffic on their way to Holles Street Hospital.

In September, Dublin's fire officers experienced something of a baby boom with staff helping to deliver two babies on one shift.
