The National Retained Firefighters Association, has taken a number of legal cases of significant importance for each and every Fire- fighter in Ireland with the view to creating a more balanced life of work, rest and play. In this regard due to European Law regulations and directives not being complied by our employers and the lack of a national organisation to oversee such the Fire Service of Ireland, we have taken a case under the working time legislation 2003/88/EC Directive to bring about change in the way we live our lives. In looking for the right Legal Council to take this case, within the Irish Courts system and if necessary to the European Courts, the NRFA have placed the trust of over 2,000 retained Fire Fighters in the safe and caring hands of Alastair Purdy & Co Solicitors to achieve this goal.
