Longford Vintage Club have provided the FETAC Level 5 Motor Technology course in Templemichael College with two vintage cars to enable students to study the basic principles behind today’s modern motor technology.

“Longford Vintage Club have offered help and support to the Motor Technology course since it was set up in September of last year,” explained Course Co-ordinator Kenneth Martin.

He explained, “It is hoped to build on the partnership between the two groups in the years to come.

The course prepares students for a career in the Motor Industry, and the link with Longford Vintage Club helps forge links with those in the industry across the county.”

Mr Martin pointed out that the partnership between Templemichael College and the very vibrant Longford Vintage Club is a great example of positive community spirit in action.

With tongue in cheek, he remarked, “The only problem since the Morris Minor and the Vauxhall Cavalier have arrived is that students are reluctant to go home at the end of the day, as they are so busy working on the two cars.”

Mr Martin concluded by saying that the Motor Technology students, and himself as course Co-ordinator, are extremely grateful to Longford Vintage Club, and particularly Miceal Nolan and Harry McKenna for their support and generosity.
