The Spa at the Killarney Plaza is celebrating a milestone birthday this month: 15 fantastic years in business in the heart of Killarney town. The first spa to open its doors in the town, the fact that they’re still thriving is a testament to their hard working staff and management. Special credit is due to Patricia Horgan who has been a dedicated member of the team since day one.

“We’ve built up such a loyal clientele over the years,” said Norma Costello. “We get a lot of locals from Killarney, people from Tralee, and a lot of our regulars would even travel from Cork and Limerick as well. We would like to thank all our customers for all their support throughout the years. We really appreciate their custom.

“We’d also like to thank our amazing team including therapists Shauna Baitson, Lauren Keane and Maggie O’Connor for all their great work,” she added. “They’re so talented and so good at what they do.”

To celebrate their anniversary, the Spa at the Killarney Plaza will be running a July Offer for the duration of this month. This includes a back, neck and shoulder massage (aromatherapy or deep tissue) and a hydra floral moisture shield anti-pollution facial (designed by Nichola Joss, Meghan Markle’s facialist). Light refreshments are also included, as is complimentary access to the heated swimming pool, sauna, steam room and jacuzzi. All of this is available for the amazing price of €89.

The Spa at the Killarney Plaza has been a tranquil oasis in the heart of Killarney town centre the past 15 years. Here’s to many more great years of success!

The question of pedestrianisation in the town centre has divided Killarney for years but a survey by the Killarney Advertiser this week shows the town slightly more in favour of it.

A total of 37.14 percent of respondents want the pedestrianisation of Plunkett St to remain as it is – closed to traffic on a permanent basis while 24.76 want it to go back to its pre-pandemic arrangement where the street was only closed to vehicular traffic between 7pm and 7am each night.

An additional 34.29 percent want to see an increase in pedestrianisation in town centre by extending the Main St arrangement that was in place during the summer. In that period the town’s main thoroughfare was closed to traffic, day and night, during the weekend.

Only 20 percent of the respondents want to abolish pedestrianisation altogether, but that is still a significant number ensuring that this debate will linger on for a long time yet.

A local group hosting a life-saving information day tomorrow (Saturday) are to receive huge exposure on national TV after a crew came down to interview them about their campaign.

Members of Killarney Cardiac Response Unit (KCRU) – who are planning a ‘Restart a Heart Day’ to raise awareness about life-saving techniques – invited journalist Paul Byrne and Virgin Media TV crew to town this week.

It’s hoped their campaign will be broadcast tonight (Friday) or tomorrow (Saturday).

The KCRU event takes place tomorrow in ANAM Arts and Cultural Centre between 10.30am and 4pm as part of the European Restart a Heart Day. It’ll include CPR demos, public information, an art display, a video launch w️ith many prizes to be won.

“The crew interviewed Community Responder Helen Duggan who explained the events taking place on Saturday,” Kevin O’Leary from KCRU told the Killarney Advertiser.

“European Restart a Heart Day was founded with the support of the European parliament and takes place on October 16 every year. We’re spreading the message that 20 minutes of your time could make all the difference saving a life.”

In 2021, the focus of the event is on survivors with the hashtag #CPRSavedMyLife.

“With this campaign we want to create awareness that everyone can learn CPR and facilitate BLS courses in schools and public locations.”

He said they hope that Kerry TDs Danny Healy-Rae, Brendan Griffin and Minister for Education Norma Foley will be in attendance throughout the day, and the public are invited to attend.

“Find out how simple actions can save lives. Prizes include a three day First Aid course valued at €300, two First Aid kits, and a voucher for a local business.”
