New lift to be installed at Killarney NCT centre

A new underbody inspection lift is to be installed at the Killarney National Car Test (NCT) centre in the coming days.

Some lifts were deemed unsafe countywide, including Killarney, to allow NCT technicians to inspect the underside of cars.

As a result, motorists were being forced to drive around with partial NCT tests.

“NCTS can confirm that we will be installing a new lift over the coming days in Killarney, it is not operational yet as it obviously still needs to be installed,” NCTS’s Sinead McKeon told the Killarney Advertiser. “When it is operational, priority will then be given to those drivers who are due to undergo a driving test shortly and an NCT taxi roadworthiness test.”

She was unable to confirm if and when the Tralee and Cahersiveen centres would become fully operational.

“We are still in the process of conducting a condition survey of all vehicle lifts in the NCT. This should be completed towards the end of this week. When completed, we will immediately begin a programme of repairing the remaining lifts within the network. We will provide regular updates as test centres come back into operation.”

The advice for customers is to continue to book and turn up for their NCT as normal.

Lee Strand was recognised once again for their exceptional performance and commitment to sustainability with Gold Membership at the Origin Green 2022 awards.

Origin Green is Ireland’s food and drink sustainability programme led by Bord Bia – The Irish Food Board. Gold Membership is awarded to companies who demonstrate an exceptional annual performance on their sustainability targets.

“We are delighted Lee Strand is recognised once again with the prestigious Origin Green Gold Membership for our commitment to sustainability,” Gearoid Linnane, CEO said.

“In Lee Strand environmental management and sustainability are key elements of our business model, from launching 100% renewable cartons, to reducing water usage and energy efficiency. This is a great achievement by our sustainability team who are continually striving for higher levels of environmental excellence. We would also like to thank Veronica Kennelly from the Munster Technological University who assisted Lee Strand in the development of our Origin Green plan.”

Origin Green continues to evolve to ensure Bord Bia is helping Irish food and drink companies to remain up to date with the evolving needs of trade customers and their consumers, globally. With the introduction of the Origin Green credits system in early 2022, it is now easier to identify members who are performing at a high level or excelling in their sustainability performance.

To retain ongoing membership of Origin Green, companies must subsequently submit an annual review to demonstrate clear progress against the established targets and initiatives set. This annual review is subject to an independent third-party review by their verification authority Mabbett. This ensures minimum programme requirements are consistently met and maintained. Companies receive credits for their performance in areas such as raw material sourcing; water and energy efficiency; waste reduction; packaging; and social sustainability. Origin Green has established five different membership tiers based on company size and turnover, so that a real diversity of industry is reflected in the overall Gold Membership.
