NCT "local" test centre!

Just received my NCT booking letter which says "To help you comply with this legal requirement, we have made a provisonal appointment at your local NCT centre (see below):

CARDONAGH, NCT centre, LISS, CARNDONAGH, DONEGAL on MONDAY 11 FEBRUARY 2013 at 08:25."

Problem is that I live in Rathfarnham Dublin (where the car is and always has been registered also)!! According to google maps it is a 297km trip to the test centre and should take almost 4 hours! No problem then if I set off at about 4am....!

I know the booking can be changed easily but it is amusing to see their definition of "local". I wonder if this is a record in terms most distant NCT centre proposed by the NCT booking service. Anyone else get one like this?

To be fair, on this island, where pretty much everybody is your cousin, less than 200 miles can be considered "local"
