The ribbon will be cut today on a brand newfacility to train fire fighters in the region.

Minister Michael D’arcy will be in Hacketstown to officially open the new training and development centre on the Tinahely road at 2.30pm.

Chief Fire officer with Carlow fire services Alan O’ Neill says a need for specialist training is how the project came about following the death of firefighter colleagues in Bray in 2007.

The state of the art Hacketstown centre has already been attended by hundreds of firefighters from all over the country.
