Achieve long lasting beautiful skin




By Jill O'Donoghue from Killarney Toning and Beauty Studio

If you're looking for glowing, clear and bright skin with an even skin tone then a peel is a great way to get started - and it's suitable for both male and females.

Our professional Sothys Glysalac chemical peel is a treatment that provides a customised programme for each individual to achieve subtle gradual or astonishing transformations.

I truly believe if you exfoliate the skin correctly, it can start to repair, rebuild and renew and you will achieve long lasting beautiful skin. This is not to be confused with a peel that causes irritation and inflammation - these peels will give lovely skin temporarily; my goal is to transform your skin for the rest of your life safely and correctly without compromising the integrity of the fundamental of your skin's anatomy. Peels are designed to renew and revitalise skin while improving fine lines, imperfections and discolouration.

A chemical peel uses a solution to improve the skin's appearance. It can reduce or eliminate fine lines under the eyes and around the mouth, correct uneven skin pigmentation, removes excess sebum causing acne and even treat acne scars. The procedure itself can be done on the face, décolletage and back acne. Coming close to the summer is a great time to treat your back to a peel as it will improve the skin before the summer clothes are out. The procedure usually starts with examining the skin to decide the best programme for your skin's needs. We often have more than one issue going on with the skin at the same time. It's important to target each issue and decide which is the most important one and the schedule required for results. Dryness, oiliness and sensitivity are a few issues. You can't treat all of these at the same time so a programme for results needs to be put in place. A course of facials is required for best results with a fantastic homecare routine.

Killarney students proved that their projects can make a positive impact after being honoured at the Young Social Innovators of the Year Ireland (YSI) Awards.

The five members of ‘Operation Red’ in St Brigid’s Secondary School were celebrating this week after receiving a national Bronze Award for their project which is raising awareness about the lack of knowledge surrounding menstrual disorders. Their goal is to encourage open discussion on these issues, so no woman ever feels alone. The team will receive a prize bursary of €750, which can be put towards developing their idea and increasing the impact of their innovation.

Young Social Innovators is a non-profit organisation that believes in the power of youth. Its vision is to empower, equip and inspire young people to change the world for good. The girls’ project was one of 34 shortlisted from over 400 YSI groups around Ireland.

“As part of our project we’re in the process of developing resources for the SPHE classes in our school,” Transition Year student Anna Cashman told the Killarney Advertiser.

“We’ll try it here as a pilot project and branch out to other schools.”

She added that plans so far include educating students by putting an information booklet together using HSE and NHS advice.

“It’s important to have the right information as it’s a very under researched issue. We have had a positive response to it.”

Cait Fitzgerald Healy from YSI arrived to the school as a surprise to the group and presented the girls with their trophy towards the end of the online ceremony. There was huge excitement all round! Teacher and mentor Catherine O’Donoghue also received the ‘Let them Shine’ award for her involvement with YSI over the last five years.


Picking up the ‘Make Our World Safer Award’, a team from St Brendan’s College was recognised for its ‘One Punch Can Kill’ project, which aims to combat toxic masculinity and raise awareness amongst young men of the seriousness of ‘one punch attacks’.

When researching the issue, the team found that many perpetrators rarely reoffend and the percentage of male-on-male violence in society is extremely high. The group examined the route cause of the issue, which stems from a variety of factors, and wanted to raise awareness that spontaneous and random ‘one punch attacks’ can have serious and life-changing consequences.

Amongst its many actions, the team embarked on media outreach, designed and delivered student workshops, created a poster campaign, held an Anti Violence Week and is currently working on a children’s book in an effort to promote the important message that ‘One Punch Can Kill’.

Pres footballers are in seventh heaven



The St Brigid’s Presentation Second Year footballers were crowned County Junior B champions on Friday last following a superb seven-goal victory over Mercy Mounthawk Tralee in the Ballymac sunshine.

The girls hit the ground running, bagging two quick goals from the boots of Lily O’Shaughnessy and Niamh Cantillon.

The Pres defence was solid and dogged throughout and managed to keep Mounthawk from breaching their goal for the duration. Abby Cronin scored three goals and a point to torment the oppostion and Niamh Cantillon scored a second goal plus a point to keep the Killarney school well in front.

Further scores from Muireann Healy and a final goal from Lara O’Neill gave us a final score of 7-4 to 0-11.

It was an excellent performance from the entire team, including the substitutes who all played their part. Captain Eve Culhane proudly accepted the cup on behalf of the team, and St Brigid’s, at the end of the game and joyous celebrations followed.

Congratulations to all the players and to their trainers: Mr Counihan, Ms Healy and Ms Brosnan.
