Liebherr is inviting applications from Leaving Certificate students and First Year electrical engineering, mechatronics and automation students, with tuition fees paid, summer work, college placements and graduate role among the benefits.

.

Scholarship recipients for 2021 will join 13 mechanical/structural engineering students and two electrical engineering students already in receipt of Liebherr scholarships.

They will have their college fees paid for the duration of their course and the additional benefits of being able to complete work experience during summer holidays and college placements throughout the course terms. The Liebherr Engineering Scholarship Programme for 2021 provides a unique opportunity for Leaving Certificate and First Year college students to gain a third level qualification, and a wealth of experience in electrical engineering or automation, with the opportunity to continue employment with Liebherr on graduation.

Recent graduates

Ciara Dennehy and Darragh O’Connell are recent graduates of the programme and now work full-time with Liebherr as graduate Automation Engineers. Ciara, a Manufacturing and Mechatronic Engineering graduate from Munster Technological University, explained her experience of the programme.

“The scholarship programme has offered me a great amount of support and resources. With the promise of summer work each year and placement it allowed me to better dedicate myself to my studies. It is great benefit, when you can see in practice, how the theory that you study in class is applied in industry. Now that I am working as an Automation Engineer, it is clear to see how well this programme has prepared me for this role and just how innovative Liebherr is. We are continuously developing new ground-breaking systems and software.”

Darragh, armed with his degree in electronic computer engineering from National University of Ireland, Galway, echoed these sentiments.
“It was a real benefit during my studies. Now that I have graduated I am able to continue working with Liebherr as an Automation Engineer."

Innovative technology

“Development of our products and systems is taking place at a rapid pace and with this in mind, we are looking for the best and brightest future engineers to join us as part of the Liebherr Engineering Scholarship Programme," Charlie McCarthy, Managing Director, Engineering at Liebherr Container Cranes, said.

"We offer the chance to work with our engineers on the further development of automation, remote control, self-diagnostics, 5G communication protocols and condition monitoring systems. In addition, sustainability is a key consideration for our customers, so our engineers also get to work on the development of hybrid, battery and alternative power systems. We develop all of these technologies in-house and the next few years will bring many exciting developments. At Liebherr, we give prospective engineers the opportunity to put their college learnings into practice and this is fundamental to their development and education.”

How to apply

Interested candidates should apply by email to recruitment.lcc@liebherr.com. Applicants should include a CV detailing Leaving Certificate/Junior Certificate/college projects and/or results and a cover letter explaining why they have chosen electrical engineering as a career path. In the case of Leaving Certificate applicants, a copy of their completed CAO form showing their choice of electrical engineering course should be included. Closing date is September 10.

It’s back – and not before time – the hugely popular Killarney Rotary Club evening of Wine and Art will return this November.

The pandemic enforced its absence and now every effort is being made to make up for lost time.

Widely regarded as one of the social highlights of the year in Killarney, this year’s gathering will take place in the Great Southern Killarney on Wednesday, November 30, commencing at 7.15pm.

Tickets, which will be available at the door, are priced at €20 and all proceeds raised on the night will go to deserving local charities and community organisations.

Over the years the evening of wine and art has raised tens of thousands of Euro for great causes and the 2022 proceeds will be of enormous benefit to the chosen groups.

This year, once again, the event is being held in association with Daly’s SuperValu and supported by Killarney Brewing and Distilling Company.

Rotary Club President, Rayla Tadjimatova, has appealed to all artists who might like to showcase their work on the night to get in touch with club members, as soon as possible, to guarantee inclusion.

“We are reaching out not only to artists who have supported the event in the past but to any new artists who wish to take the opportunity to place their work in front of a very appreciative local audience of up to one thousand people on the night,” she said.

Those interested should email killarneyrotaryclub@gmail.com as soon as possible.
