Published

on

One of the world’s leading manufacturers of ship to shore container cranes is calling for applications for its Apprenticeship Programme for 2021/2022.

The Liebherr Container Cranes apprenticeship programme, which will now run in line with academic calendar, has Mechanical Automation and Maintenance Fitter, Metal Fabrication, and Electrical apprenticeships available. The closing date for applications is Friday, June 25.

"Beginning this year, enrolment for apprentices will follow the academic calendar with commencement of apprenticeships in September as opposed to January," Trevor O'Donoghue from Liebherr Container Cranes said.

"At Liebherr, apprenticeships have always had a theoretical and a practical element. In recent years, as products and manufacturing technologies have become more advanced, the theoretical element of the apprenticeships has become even more important. Liebherr have worked closely with Solas and Munster Technological University (MTU) and are delighted to be able to offer apprentices a dual qualification."

Apprentices will receive a Level 6 Craft Certificate in their trade and a Level 6 Higher Certificate in Engineering in their respective fields from MTU.

"Liebherr apprenticeships are an excellent opportunity for candidates to get an internationally recognised qualification along with an academic qualification, which provides a basis for further studies. Once qualified, the Higher Level 6 certificate award will allow graduates to continue to diploma or degree level in their chosen field."

Liebherr has long been recognised as a pioneer in the provision of apprenticeships. The very first apprentices enrolled in 1959 and the apprentice programme has been in operation ever since providing a steady stream of highly qualified and skilled graduates. Apprentices spend four years developing their skills and knowledge, all the while pursuing academic training. During their training, they undertake many different roles and are highly experienced when they graduate. This opens up many opportunities and career pathways within Liebherr.

To apply for these roles, applicants, who must be at least 16 years of age on September 1, 2021, should send an up to date CV, a copy of academic results and a cover letter specifying the role that they are interested in, and why, to apprenticerecruit.lcc@liebherr.com. Any further documents such as training certificates, references, project details and awards etc., should also be included.

Successful candidates will benefit from a competitive package, fully paid training and education, excellent future employment and progression prospects, along with the opportunity to travel the world.

Headford man’s 1948 Jaguar the star of car run

A staggering 157 classic and vintage cars and motorcycles took part in the 12th annual Car and Honda 50 Run, organised by Ballymac Vintage Club on Sunday.

The O’Riada’s Bar and Restaurant-based event raised money for the nearby Glanageenty Walkways and followed a new for 2022 route via Ballymac, Raemore, Knocknagoshel, Brosna, and Mount Eagle before the finish line in the Mart Yard in Castleisland.

Gerard Healy from Knockysheehan, Headford, Killarney had the oldest cars on the run.

He has owned his 1948 Jaguar Mark 4 saloon for the last seven years.

“This car was manufactured in Coventry after World War Two,” he said. “And it was then shipped to Ireland in kit form to avoid high import duty on complete cars. It was reassembled in Dublin and painted emerald green. This is a Sligo car, the first owner was a Miss Teresa Ferry, it was very unusual for a lady to own a car in those days.”

The car was then sold to a vicar and then a soldier before, somehow, ending up in The Netherlands. There it underwent a full restoration in 1999.

Gerard bought the car from a restorer called Roberto Verboon.

“I was proud to bring the car back to Ireland,” he added.

Thanks to generous support from local businesses and sponsors including O’Riada’s and BG Motors over €500 worth of spot prizes were handed out on the day.

Listry’s Tony and Kay Darmody were prize winners after judges were impressed with their Hillman Minx Convertible.

George Carey from Tralee won the motorcycle award with his finely turned out 1986 Honda 90.
