Mayor of Killarney, Marie Moloney, has welcomed a return to normality as Killarney prepares for its first St Patrick’s Day Parade since the pandemic struck.

However, she also urged caution as COVID-19 is still prevalent in the community.

“It has now been three years since our last St Patrick’s Day Festival and parade. We are just emerging from two very difficult years due to the pandemic, however I would urge people to still be cautious as COVID-19 is still around and people are still contracting the disease, and to do what is comfortable with them to stay safe. With that being said, it is great to see things returning to some normality,” she told the Killarney Advertiser.

The Mayor’s St Patrick’s weekend engagements started last night (Wednesday) where she met 60 American tourists at the Plaza Hotel. There she invited the visitors to march in today’s parade.

“We look forward to the celebrations, the parade promises to be as big and as colourful as ever,” she added. “We also have a number of visitors who have come to march with us - some from overseas. It will be great to see the children back on the streets, those participating in the parade and those who have come out with their parents to watch and enjoy."

She has also extended an invitation to the people of Rathmore to participate in the Killarney Parade. Rathmore’s parade, which was scheduled for Sunday last, was cancelled at the last minute due to health and safety concerns surrounding unfinished road works in the village.

“I want to thank the St Patrick’s Day committee for their extremely hard work to make this year’s festival a reality,” she said.

"I also want to invite the people of Rathmore, who unfortunately could not go ahead with their parade last Sunday, to come and join us in the Killarney parade this year.”

Needless to say we all know what cellulite looks like, but there are many ways to reduce its appearance and help us look and feel better about it.

Yes, people often assume it’s down to a weight issue but it is associated with diet and exercise. It can affect all ages, male and female. There are many ways to help reduce and eliminate it.

Nothing can substitute for eating a healthy diet and getting enough exercise. Just as with other signs of ageing, cellulite is best managed first and foremost by focusing on maintaining a healthy weight long term. But certain topical treatments may help it become less noticeable and improve skin’s overall appearance, if used regularly. Dry body brushing is one technique to try by brushing upwards every day towards the heart for increased blood circulation.

Using anti-cellulite products can help if you are doing regular exercise and watching your diet, but if you feel you need a boost to get you headed in the right direction, there is a few different salon treatments that can be of benefit.

The Universal Contour Body Wrap is a great treatment which results in inch loss due to the detoxing effect of the sea clay or also the Electro Cellulite Massage rollers (ECM) by CACI Machine, which is a 12-session course over four weeks, this is recommended for desired results.

Pilates is always an amazing lifestyle choice. Having the toning tables for the past 30 years in Killarney, we are lucky to hear the amazing results from our clients past and present. Some have even been with us since we started! The male and female reviews have reported reduced cellulite with weekly appointments, improved posture, increased energy and mostly reduced cellulite.

Two Kerry-based car dealers are part of a national campaign to provide essential aid for Ukraine.

Donagh Hickey Motors in Rathmore and Adam’s of Tralee are the two local garages that have signed up for the project.

Under the scheme, the garages will be used as collection hubs for essential equipment that will be transported to the war torn country.

“We have a very large and loyal customer base and we are appealing through them to make donations,” Adam’s of Tralee General Manager, Marcus O’Shea, told the Killarney Advertiser.

“Any dealer could have signed up for this but we are one of only two in Kerry to do so.”

The garages, following advice from humanitarian agencies in Ukraine, have created a very specific list of what is urgently needed out there.

These include generators, solar battery chargers, batteries, power banks, flashlights, drones and tablets.

Medical equipment like First Aid kits (NATO standard) and other medical items are also sought.

People can assist by either dropping goods to the two garages or by making a donation via www.safeharbourforukraine.org.
