After an absence of three years there was a huge turnout to the Good Friday Walk which raised almost €6,000 for the Kerry Hospice.

Walkers came out in their droves eager to support the popular event organised by Killarney branch members in memory of Vivien O’Shea and Sheila McGillycuddy who passed away with life-limiting illnesses.

Walkers set off at 10.30am and got to enjoy the choice of two walks in the beautiful surroundings of the National Park, an 8km walk from the Garden Restaurant via Dinis Cottage and a section of Torc Trail and the second shorter route 6kms from the Garden Restaurant to Brickeen Bridge and back.

"We have always been lucky with the weather and last Friday was no exception," Killarney Hospice Branch chairperson, Pat Doolan, told the Killarney Advertiser.

"Our ambassador for the morning was Rathmore lady, Danielle O’Leary, fresh from her exploits with the victorious Kerry ladies football team in Croke Park on the previous Sunday. The fantastic sum of €5,811 was raised on the day for the benefit of Kerry Hospice."

On completion of the walk the participants were able to relax in the pleasant surroundings of The Garden Restaurant, Muckross House where a raffle for some beautiful prizes was held. There were prizes also for junior/adults quiz which had been arranged by quizmaster Padraig O’Sullivan.

The organising committee wish to sincerely thank all who contributed in various ways to the success of the event including people who made donations but were not able to take part in the walk.

“I wish to acknowledge with gratitude the help and support we received from various quarters including the press, parish office, local business community and various individuals in the running of this event. The generosity of our benefactors never ceases to amaze," Pat added.

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.
