Fire brigade hailed

NEARLY 150 firefighters and policemen from the US will take part in a ceremony to mark 150 years of Dublin Fire Brigade tomorrow.

Members of 12 fire and police pipe and drum bands from Florida, Philadelphia, Boston and other cities will join the Dublin Fire Brigade Pipe Band ahead of the Leinster SFC quarter-finals at Croke Park where Longford take on Wexford and Dublin play Louth.

The DFB band will perform the national anthem and then join the American bands during half-time.
