Is their database out of date a bit or do the irish police and fire still use analogue a lot over there ?

The Southgate site, said the database had been updated, so presumably they do still use analogue.

Thats interesting i thought that all uk forces were all totally airwave ?

is there anywhere to listen to live radio or even recorded ones from ireland as i cant find any online which is strange ? i was told 100% that all uk forces are airwave including police fire and ambulance.

Alfie I just want to point out that only Northern Ireland is part of UK.

Republic of Ireland is in itself its own country and not part of UK.

GB is Scotland, England and Wales and UK is GB plus NI.

Republic of Ireland stands on its own as is a Republic.

As for emergency services I would not expect any of them to be analogue, at least not on a control level. If so it may be possible Republic of Ireland are as they are not UK.

A lot of the frequencies on it are way out of date. i had a quick look over them for my area and lots are not used anymore. Some are still valid and active. As for the Irish Republic police (Gardai) they are encrypted coms as i can sometimes pick up their frequencies but they scrambled. As for the PSNI here in Northern ireland they use tetra radios. Im not sure about the southern irish ambulance service but i do know until recently i could hear an ambulance dispatch in County Donegal which was around 84 mhz and not encrypted.

I do know that the Northern Ireland fire and rescue handheld radios are still analogue as ive heard my local station use them recently talking to BA operators at the scene of a local incident.
Im sure there are more guys on here from North or Southern Ireland who can also vouch for what they have seen on there too regarding frequencies..
