I think I know who your talking about & he's a complete cowboy.

Unfortunately the number of cowboys is growing. Regulations are only successful if they are enforced.

True & I don't think they have the power or the back bone to enforce it

Enforcement has happened... One of our Ambulances was stopped on blues and checked for a casualty in the recent past...

That's enforcement by AGS. I was more referring to Phecc & the cowboys.

Just out of curiosity why did they pull over your orgs Ambo while on lights?. Bad driving or what ?

I'm confused.... If ye had blue lights on then surely ye would have been waved on...... By any chance was there a complaint before..... What did the patient say

It could be in an area with a few walters / cowboys running around and / or they might have just turned on the lights and the Gardai suspected it was just an attempt to get through without being checked

or maybe its just Vidar being Vidar  19

No issue with previous complaint as far as I know... Patient was not in a position to say much, as being worked on at the time.....

Blues and twos on for enough time to be audible long before CP, then visible for several hundred meters (due to nature of road).

Id say Vidar too....

Thats what was emailed out to all voluntary groups after the AGM. Most unprofessional behaviour i have ever witnessed. Obviously an attempt to blacken other peoples reputation - but there are some serious libellous allegations there also... clearly they did not consult a solicitor before sending to several dozen organisations...
Full of incorrect information also, as you do not need a charity number to fundraise or be a charity, a CN number is purely to claim back Vat. You do however need to be registered with the new charity regulator - but they are running 2  years behind now. So it would be impossible to say at this stage who has/has not registered.

I think the issue with these two groups is neither of them are managed by anyone in the Blue light services - hence they lack structure, direction and credibility.
(Delta-1 in Galway springs to mind 😐)

You do need a charity registration number to fundraise & act as a charity. The old charity no ie CHY is for those groups who wish to avail of tax exemption schemes from the Revenue. Charity numbers per se are nothing to  do with claiming vat back as you must be zero rated for vat to eeffect this.

The backing of the Fire Service?! I'm sure it will be news to the firefighters in Limerick.
We are the willing, led by the unknowning, doing the impossible, for the ungrateful.

If you are a 'charitable organisation' that relies on the charitable donations from people to operate, you do not need a charity number. You do however require a permit for fundraising.
There are probably more voluntary groups in this position in ireland than there are registered charities.
It is not possible to obtain a charity number any longer in ireland now with the establishment of the Charities Regulator.

 "All charitable organisations are legally required to be registered with and to report annually to the the Charities Regulator"

I see your point but it doesnt appear to seperate between the likes of this group, etc and the likes of Concern
