The Dublin Fire Brigade have been praised for their help in delivering a baby girl earlier this week.
On Sunday morning, they were called to the aid of mum-to-be Emma Tyrrell who's daughter was in a 'big hurry' to arrive.
Firefighters and paramedics went to her home when Emma knew she would not be able to make it to the hospital before labour began.
Ms. Tyrrell recalled the moments that the Fire Brigade arrived in the nick of time.
Taking to Twitter Emma said: "I hadn’t actually planned a home birth but the lads arrived with literal seconds to spare this morning - less than 15 minutes after we realised we weren’t going to make it."
