    Unless they build inside the shell of the old structure. Can't see how using the existing structure is possible at all.

    DoD are currently, in 4 seperate tenders, seeking:
    1. Architect. https://irl.eu-supply.com/app/rfq/rw...RS_SIMPLE&PS=1
    2. Quantity surveyor. https://irl.eu-supply.com/app/rfq/rw...RS_SIMPLE&PS=1
    3. Structural Engineer. https://irl.eu-supply.com/app/rfq/rw...RS_SIMPLE&PS=1
    4. Services engineer. https://irl.eu-supply.com/app/rfq/rw...RS_SIMPLE&PS=1
    No mention of an actual refurb construction team yet, but this is the first step.
    Well there goes any increase in the capital budget. Refurbishing that is going to be an utter balls and a money pit.

    As per the Fire Services Act a Fire Authority can enter any land/premise for the purpose of firefighting even if not involved in the Fire, but where they are refused they call on the Gardai to enforce the Act as the Fire Authority are not in a position to use physical Force
    Are you not bact to the "civilian In uniform" syndrome ie unless in time of hostilities etc everybody must submit to civil law.

    The individual who prevents the firefighting experts (on land) from entering a military establishment would be very foolish. imho.

    BTW if the mag was in danger of going off I dont think the Fire Service would be too keen in going in

    @apc, I understand that the Fire Brigade have attended and dealt with gorse fires on Military Ranges and asked permission afterwards.

    Under the 1981 act the fire brigade have unconditional power of entry to all lands buildings etc re fires.Would take a fearless CO to keep fire brigade out it the mag was in danger of going off.

    Does the Local Authority Fire Service have the right to enter Military Installations for the Purpose of Firefighting or would the Miltary have the right to refuse entry for any reason. I am lead to believe even the Gardai cant enter a military installation without being invited in and are only there at the behest of the military powers

    This is a legal requirement under the FSA 1981 as amended.
    Thought as much, thanks for the clarification.

    I remember years back a fire on a navel ship Michel Mc Intyre from Offly got a D.S.M for bravery during the incident

    That was at sea. Peadar Tumulty also got one.
    Not an attempt to undermine the work of the guys involved but Fires at sea are more common place that is often reported.

    We had two on Eithne in the one week, both engine room related and quite serious.First one was a bit scary with some hilarious moments, second one again had its funny moments We also had a helo that caught fire, I was fire crew on the helideck the same day.


    Jerry Duffy was the kiddie the first and second fires.

    Aisling had a fire in the Chippies workshop, I was on Stand Too the same day and ran to the Oil Wharf before the fire tender got there!...and John Carney and Wayne Boston did set fire to the training office...fires in Haulbowline and on ships......just part of the job.

    Now if all of this is too much of a coincidence...no it wasn't me.

    this would have been the second fire of such a large building and at last hsa woke up and implemented proper fire rules as they are in all areas of dangerous liquids etc as in the pharma industries..
