We're sending huge well done messages to the Dublin Fire Brigade today after they helped deliver a baby yesterday morning.
According to reports, the crew assisted the National Ambulance Service as a mum delivered a baby girl, weighing just 3 pounds and 14 ounces, in her home in Brookview, Tallaght, yesterday morning.

Firefighter Billy McHugh, who has now delivered five babies, told the Tallaght Echo that the little girl arrived four weeks early, but is said to doing great.
“Our work can be very hard at times so to be part of something like the birth of a baby is a lovely aspect of the job.”
