Local Link Kerry are currently working with Keel Castlemaine LIFT to operate a Community Car scheme for their area. A car owned by the Community and driven by local Volunteers (who are registered with and Garda Vetted through Local Link Kerry) will operate Sunday to Thursdays evenings and is available to all members of the local community.
