Heroes from across the country are being recognised this afternoon at the National Bravery Awards this afternoon.

The event in Farmleigh in Dublin praises some of the people who have put their lives on the line to save others from harm.

The Killybegs fire brigade are amoung those being recognised for their bravery after saving an elderly woman from a fire over two years ago.

At  8:00am on 1st November, 2013, a fire broke out in the bar premises of Hughie’s Bar, Killybegs, Co. Donegal.

It quickly spread to the upstairs living quarters of a 93 year old woman, who was the sole occupant of the house but firefighters managed to rescue the woman.
