Tom McGuinness

Local Fireman, Tom McGuinness has recently retired from the Fire Brigade. Tom joined the service over 25 years ago and was always on hand over the years for the various incidents they may be called to – fires, traffic accidents, floods etc.

The Fire Service in Tubbercurry is made up of part-time officers who work other jobs but are always on call when the alarm is roused. They have to drop tools and rush to the emergency scene. Their role is often vital in saving lives and property, and sometimes under appreciated.

Well done and thank you to Tom McGuinness and indeed to all his colleagues.
