Las Fallon is an operational firefighter with over twenty-seven years service in the fire brigade. As a fire service historian and researcher he has published a number of articles in both fire service and collectors magazines and on-line. He was the curator of the Dublin Fire Brigade Museum from 2008-2011 and is a member of a number of fire service heritage organisations including the Fire Service Trust, the Fire Heritage Network and the Fire Mark Circle. His interest in the revolutionary period is reflected in his membership of the Irish Volunteers Commemorative Organisation (IVCO) http:/irishvolunteers.org and the 1916-1921 Club. The book is very well researched and will appeal to all historians of the revolutionary period as well as earchers and collectors of fire service memorabilia. It is a high quality publication comprising 154 pages in gloss format. There are many rare photographs from the period and two colour sections with contemporary maps , painting etc and highly detailed shots of fire service helmets,insignia and medals. There is a wealth of detailed information in this book. We highly recommend it.
