New York fire truck makes big arrival in Dublin Port

The 1987 Seagrave tiller ladder truck arrived in Dublin Port this week following a four week journey from New York to Dublin via sea and was met with a welcome parade from Dublin Fire Brigade and An Garda Síochána.

The vintage fire truck known as ‘Ladder 5211’ served in 9/11 and was used for over 32 years at the City of Glen Cove Volunteer Fire Department in Long Island and received a huge send off from the New York Fire Department.


It was brought to Ireland by a private collector, Liam Moore, and will be displayed at shows and parades for charitable causes when Covid-19 restrictions are lifted.
