    Too many hot takeaways ordered in for lunch?

    On a more serious note, I hope all is well.

    Just happened to be passing, lots of smoke out the front, but 4 fire brigades out the back and no more smoke out back, wouldn't know how to describe it but does not seem too much damage.

    It is the gardai station and its still smoldering smoke but no flames outside.

    Drove past there about twenty minutes ago. There were a number of fire engines there, and two more plus an unmarked Garda car passed me on Shannon bridge.

    What do you expect them to do....stay in a building thats on fire. Get real. Plus I'm sure you will find that its the fire brigade that has the place shut down as they put the fire out.

    I'm no fan of Limerick's police force, but a gas explosion is hardly just a few flames.
