NEKD's Response to news stories on Radio Kerry recently

 In Castleisland NEKD rents its premises in Crageens from a company called Sliabh na gCaiseal. The Board and CEO are satisfied – following advices received at the time of occupying the premises and also more recently – that Sliabh na gCaiseal is a separate legal entity. According to Chairperson of NEKD, Bernard Collins, the advice received by the board states that NEKD has no responsibility to cover losses incurred by Sliabh Na gCaiseal. NEKD cannot comment on the situation or the affairs of another company. 

 The premises accommodate NEKD’s offices and projects. It is worth noting that other tenants such as Pieta House, the Boxing Club, and other local community-based projects also use the premises. 

 Furthermore NEKD is confident that it will continue in its commitment to delivery the services and programmes that our local communities demand of us. 

 North Kerry IT Network Limited was a company formed in 2001, which was well before NEKD was established in 2009. This was a separate company and independent of NEKD.
