“I want to pay tribute to Donegal County Council, chief fire officer Joseph McTaggart, Milford Station Officer Eugene McCafferty and all the staff of Milford Fire Station for the work they do in fire prevention, and when we need them, in attending the scenes of both fires and road traffic accidents.”
