Months of frustration for East Meath residents facing huge delays in obtaining NCT tests has led to Sinn Féin TD Imelda Munster blasting the backlog.

She has called on the Transport Minister to address the ongoing backlog for NCT tests in the Drogheda area.

The Louth and East Meath Deputy broached the issue with Minister, and Green Party leader, Éamonn Ryan after receiving several complaints from constituents who have been told they will be waiting until early 2023 for an NCT test.

Furious Munster claimed that since the issue was first highlighted in May there has been little or no improvement.
