This baby girl was delivered by Dublin firefighters this morning
Baby Eva’s parents will have a good story to tell her when she’s older.

ONE SET OF proud parents will have an interesting story to tell their little girl when she’s a bit older.

In the early hours of this morning a Dublin Fire Brigade ambulance crew from Swords were called to a woman in labour.

The crew had just arrived at the couple’s home when the little one decided she was done waiting and fire brigade paramedics Barry Holohan and Steve McNally delivered her there.

She and her mother were then taken to the Rotunda Hospital

Both Baby Eva and her mother are said to be doing well. The fire station said her parents were “delighted” to share the story and this picture of their beautiful little girl:
