A 17-year-old Killarney girl - who has only been active on social media App TikTok for two months - was this week stunned to get over 11m views on her video as well as a comment from a global beauty influencer.

Yesterday afternoon (Thursday), Amy Cronin, who is preparing to go into Leaving Cert in Killarney Community College, was left speechless when the creative make-up video she posted late on Tuesday night hit 10m views and received 2.6m likes.

 

However, since the Killarney Advertiser went to print the numbers keep on rising and currently Amy's views are now over 11 million, with 3.4m likes, almost 20,000 comments, and she now has over 102k followers.

 

Her stunning face design is a take on American Internet personality, beauty YouTuber and make-up artist James Charles who has 21.6m followers worldwide.

Never in her wildest dreams did she think he'd see her video titled 'Day 1 of recreating James Charles looks until he notices me' - and he did almost immediately!

For Amy, the comment was something that she could have only dreamed of.

 

"Okay well I noticed you and you killed it but can we please pretend like I didn't so you can keep creating looks?" James Charles said.

Amy says when she heard he commented on her personal post she thought it was a joke at first as it's almost impossible that he can find her out of his 21.6m followers.

 

"I made the video Monday night, it took me two and a half hours to do the make-up," Amy, daughter of Joe and Lorraine, told the Killarney Advertiser yesterday (Thursday).

"I saved it in my drafts and posted it late on Tuesday night before I went to bed and it had about 900 views. Usually I average 1000. I woke up and I was after getting about 20k. I was shocked and saying "Oh my God". There was a lot of comments and the views just kept going up and up. Then I was on TikTok live and people were saying James Charles commented. I didn't know what to say I was speechless."  

Now Amy is hoping to become a make-up artist herself and aims to have his success.

"He has a show called 'Instant Influencer' and people are telling me to audition as I want to be a make-up artist."

A newly established Patient Advocacy Service is offering support to people in the Kerry area who want to make a complaint about the care they have received in a public hospital.

The service provides free, independent and confidential information and support to people making a formal complaint about their care in a Health Service Executive (HSE) funded public acute hospital.

People in the Kerry area looking for support can contact the Patient Advocacy Service confidential helpline on 0818 293003 to speak to a trained advocate who will help them to get information on the HSE’s complaints investigation process, called ‘Your Service, Your Say’.

The professionally trained independent advocate will support and empower the person making the complaint, with the aim of highlighting their views and concerns.

The advocate will explain to the person how to write a formal complaint and what to include in it. They will also help the person prepare for meetings with the HSE about their complaint, and they will help the person explore their options following a response from the HSE to their complaint.

“Until now, people in Kerry and across Ireland who experienced difficulties in the Irish health service often felt there was nowhere for them to turn,” Service Manager for the Patient Advocacy Service, Claire Lehane, said.

GUIDANCE

“The newly established Patient Advocacy Service offers patients the guidance and information they need to make a complaint when they are unhappy with the care they receive. It is free, independent and run by our professionally trained patient advocates who will use their compassion and knowledge to guide people through the HSE complaints process.”

The helpline is open Monday to Friday from 10am until 4pm, including lunchtimes. You can also email info@patientadvocacyservice.ie or for more information see patientadvocacyservice.ie.

The Kerry-Dublin air route returned to the skies for the first time in nearly seven weeks today (Wednesday).

Budget airline Ryanair has taken over the route following the collapse of Stobart Air on June 12.

At around 1pm, one of Ryanair’s Boeing 737-800 aircraft landed at the airport after completing its 50 minute journey for Dublin.

Less than 25 minutes later it was back in the sky again for its return journey to the capital.

The flight will operate once a day until September 1 when the frequency will increase to twice daily.

“We are happy to report a positive start to the service which has been absent since early June,” the airport’s CEO John Mulhern told the Killarney Advertiser. “Ryanair intends to operate the route once a day until the end of August and has committed to restoring a twice-daily service from September.”

The route is operated on a commercial basis by Ryanair. Since 2011, Aer Lingus, through its subsidiary Aer Lingus Regional or its partners Aer Arran and Stobart Air operated the flight as a Government support Public Service Obligation (PSO). Previously, between 2008 and 2011 Ryanair operated the route on a commercial basis but withdrew at short notice as it could not make it profitable.
