As we continue our mission, we encourage communication, co-operation and friendship among the personnel of the Services themselves.

Seamus O’Neill, a retired school principal never forgot the support local Frontline Service workers gave to his school.
“We’d had no money in the school and the army and the guards used to play football matches to fundraise for us. So in 2013 I was looking around and there was nothing in the State that recognised the work that the emergency and security services were doing.”
He decided to do something about it. He pulled together volunteers from all the Frontline Services to form a non-profit organisation: FESSEF. Their mission would be to create events for the public to show their appreciation, while fostering greater collaboration between their services.
“I thought this would be one way of giving recognition to these individuals for the work they were doing”
