S/Off Robbie Kane DFB
#1
Our friend and colleague Robbie Kane passed away in the early hours of this morning following a long and hard fought battle with cancer. 
He was 47 years of age and had served in Kilbarrack as a firefighter for 14 years before being promoted to B watch HQ. Robbie's quietly spoken and calm persona belied the passion which he brought to his many sporting activities and his love of a good night out with his large circle of mates . He was a tough guy in the proper sense of the word, an old school straight talker who was a horse of a man in a tight spot, and a formidable adversary on the pitch. His death came as a surprise to many of us who had thought him indestructible. He fought his fight quietly and with dignity and true to form didn't want anyone making a fuss so kept the seriousness of his condition a secret except to a very tight and loyal group of closest friends. We in DFB, his family and his beloved daughter will miss him dearly.

We trained hard ... but it seemed that every time we were beginning to form up into teams we would be reorganized. I was to learn later in life that we tend to meet any new situation by reorganizing; and a wonderful method it can be for creating the illusion of progress while producing confusion, inefficiency, and demoralization.

Heard a few weeks ago that he had taken a turn for the worse but I certainly never expected to hear he had passed away so soon. A genuinely decent, nice bloke.

The best gift you can give to someone is your time, because you are giving them something you can never get back.

He who fights with monsters should look to it that he himself does not become a monster.
