Its that time of year again, when we are getting ready for Christmas, family and Santa. Sadly not everyone will be looking forward with anticipation, instead simple hoping for food, warmth or a small present. Thankfully there are goups like 'Little Blue Heroes' and 'Barnados' out there. Both help the youngest and most vulnerable in society and this Christmas we ask that you join us in making a donation at https://www.littleblueheroes.org/donate/ or https://www.barnardos.ie/christmas

There wont be any arguments BB, we're always right ! (now wheres that smilies button ?)
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.

Very good recognised a few lads especially one I know well. Good show lads.

I would have told that young one on top of the shelter to fuck off and get down herself.

Very good and made the DFB lads look well, but can i ask would a D/O really go to a call like the one on top of the shelter normally??
Those who can, do.

Those who can't do, teach.

Really good show, have to say I enjoyed it. I would have told that scut on top of the luas shelter to get herself off it as she got up there in the first place.

For by wise guidance you can wage your war, and in abundance of counselors there is victory (Proverbs 24:6)

Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rapidly promoted by mainstream media & incomptent managers, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a piece of excrement by the clean end

Have to say it was good. Came across very well and so far everyone looks very professional. Of course the engineers haven't had a chance to ruin it yet.....

He would in his arse!!!!

The camera crew was travelling with the DO's a lot of the time so he obviously just responded to it to show the bullshit calls that can come in

Just to ask the lads in the DFB here... Is there not a standard issue helmet issued to the DFB members? Coz some were wearing the old type helmet on the parade at the start of the programme & others were wearing the new type helmet...???
