REOPENING: Killarney NCT Centre will reopen to the public on June 22.

By Michelle Crean

It'll be another week and a half before Killarney NCT Centre reopens to the public following its closure due to the COVID-19 lockdown.

June 22 is the scheduled date for the doors to reopen to the public with appointment slots available for customers to book their NCT.

This week National Car Testing Service (NCTS) began a phased reopening of the NCT service across the country with the reopening of 15 centres being done in line with the Government’s Roadmap for reopening Society and Business, and in compliance with the National Return to Work Safely Protocol.

In the short term the roadworthiness testing of vehicles will be on a limited basis and restricted only to those vehicles that had a test due date prior to March 28 before the four-month extension to vehicle certificates of roadworthiness came into effect. This will include vehicle owners who were unable to secure a retest date because of the suspension of the service and those affected by the vehicle lifts issue.

To enable the reopening of centres, the NCTS has put detailed measures in place, in each test centre, to mitigate against the spread of COVID-19 and to protect both customers and staff. These measures include the need to make an appointment, customers are required to prepay their tests when booking online for pre-authorisation purposes, the transaction can be completed using the card in the test centre. No cash will be accepted in the centres. Social distancing controls will be in place including notices posted both internally and externally around the test centre and physical distancing floor markers.

"The safety of the public is paramount, and we continue to be guided by public health officials and relevant national experts. If information or guidance changes, we will reassess and change our procedures and protocols accordingly," Sinéad McKeon from NCTS said.

"Furthermore, all staff have received mandatory training on COVID-19 safety and hygiene protocols covering social distancing requirements, personal hygiene, and the correct use of PPE equipment."

Any customers who qualified for the four month extension to the period of validity of their NCT roadworthiness certificate are encouraged to log onto www.ncts.ie where they can check their new test due date.

Customers should take note of the Government’s travel restrictions before booking a test and are advised to refer to the NCTS website to familiarise themselves on the protocols that are now in place.

It may be the last few weeks of the holidays but, it is no better time treat yourself to a body detox wrap.

This wrap is suitable for males and females.
This wrap will boost your energy levels and make you feel like yourself again. Having loads of BBQs and nights out or feeling bloated and sluggish, unmotivated.
This wrap is a great way to boost energy by increasing lymphatic drainage, which helps the body’s natural detox system to release bad toxins. By aiding the lymphatic system and increasing the negative, harmful toxins. Your body will immediately start to feel better, more motivated, and increased energy. Your skin will feel better and bring your glow back.

The process is having sea clay applied all over the body, followed by bandages wrapped in a specific way to lift and firm the skin and finally you are tucked up in a heated blanket….. to sweat out the negative toxins. following the treatment, you have a three-day detox, no tea, coffee, fried fatty foods, fizzy drinks, processed foods or even a shower to leave the active clay and get to work on the lymphatic system.

This is a seriously great treatment, that really works if you follow the process. As the heat from the blanket helps to open your pores on the body the sea clay can go into the deep layers of the skin, when you unwrap the clay is trapped in the skin and its ingredients get to work.

Bentonite has excellent drainage properties for full detox and skin clarification.

Magnesium sulphate stimulates peripheral skin circulation, exfoliating and anti-inflammatory.
Magnesium Chloride has valuable mineral salt and permits cellular balance, combats stress and fluid retention, and has anti-bacterial properties.

Zinc oxide, bacterium properties and anti-inflammatory.

Sodium Chloride detoxifies tissues and tightens the skin.

They work best the longer they are left on the skin and the longer you detox. I wouldn’t claim a 2-hour treatment can do amazing results without the homework. The clay isn’t dirty looking on the skin, it looks more like a cloud of chalky dust on the outer skin, the active properties have been absorbed into the skin.
The skin may feel a little different while the clay is working, but the results are worth it. It’s a great treatment after weight loss, pregnancy, liposuction or just re-energises you as a whole.

Organisers of Puck Fair have taken King Puck down from his platform to protect the wild mountain goat from the heat.

Today mark’s day two of the three-day fair in Killorglin town. As part of the fair’s tradition a wild mountain goat presides over the town from his tall platform over the course of the three days.

Organisers employ a dedicated vet to look after the goat and a team of experienced goat handlers are also on duty for the duration of the festival.

There is also a temperature monitoring device on the platform.

As temperatures hit 29 degrees today (Thursday), the vet and handlers decided it was safer for the goat to be removed from the platform for the rest of the day.

“He is currently resting in the shade,” spokesperson Marcella O’Connor told the Killarney Advertiser. “The handlers were monitoring him in case it got too hot, the decision was made to take him down, and the vet says he is happy.”

A decision will be made tomorrow (Friday) on the goat’s return to the platform for the final day of the fair.
