THIS time last year Julett Culloty had taken centre stage to represent her county in the Rose of Tralee and the bubbly young Kilcummin lady was delighted to return to the county town to renew friendships and support her successor in this year’s festival.

And the social whirl doesn’t stop there for Julett, who this evening will be joining Majella O’Donnell a host of others who have recovered from cancer as they take to the catwalk in the INEC for the Models in Recovery fashion show in aid of the Killarney branch of the Kerry Hospice Foundation. “It is such a positive event, we’re all in recovery and we all have different stories,” Julett told the Killarney Advertiser.

“We often only hear the negative stories when we think of cancer. It can be so frightening; people think of the worst-case scenario but this fashion show celebrates people getting through the experience so it really is a fantastic cause to be supporting.”

Julett was diagnosed with cervical cancer in April 2014. “I began my treatment in June of that year. I had intensive chemotherapy and radiotherapy,” she said. Fortunately Julette got the all-clear in October 2014.

She is keen to spread the message of positivity and hope to others. “News of diagnosis is obviously a blow. I remember when I was dealing with it, the best advice I got was from my uncle, Dan Reidy, who said: ‘Look, we’ll get through today, and as for what’s coming tomorrow, we’ll deal with that then.’ That concept of taking things day by day was so helpful, particularly when there was so much racing through my head.”

Co-ordinated by Margaret Walsh O’Donoghue, the fashion show will be preceded by a wine reception at 7pm sharp. Tickets, €15, are available from Pat Doolan, chairman, Killarney branch of Kerry Hospice Foundation, 085-1543514, or participating shops.

It may sound too good to be true but fat dissolving injections are as effective as the name suggests.

They are administered by our in-house Dr. Micheal Flynn who has been attending our salon for the past 10 years. It is the double chin and neck area that is treated and is suitable for both men and women. If you haven’t heard of fat dissolving, it is a very popular and relatively new treatment that is used to target stubborn pockets of fat on the jaw line and chin area. The injection dissolves and eliminates fat cells in a safe and effective way, making it perfect for dealing with stubborn fat that simply won’t budge with exercise.

The main ingredient is a fat dissolving substance sodium deoxycholate, which is found naturally in the body. This is injected into the treatment area which over time will destroy the fat cells. These are then removed from the body by its own lymphatic system, a complex network that rids the body of unwanted toxins and waste.

It is important to understand that fat dissolving injections are not a weight loss treatment. The injections should only be used on people who are a healthy size or carrying a little extra weight. It’s most effective on the pockets of fat stored under the jawline, known as the double chin, a migration of fat cells from the cheeks to the jaw line.

The injections work at a slow pace. It can take serval weeks for full results, but once it’s gone, it’s gone. The results are permanent, once you don’t gain a massive amount of weight.

The next clinic is Monday August 22. To book an appointment or more information, call Jill on 064 6632966.

Six members of the Killarney Valley Classic and Vintage Club will set out from County Meath on Wednesday on vintage tractors.

They are participating in the annual Eastern Vintage Club’s Ring of Kerry Tractor Run which is raising funds for the Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association.

Over 50 vintage tractors, including the six Killarney examples, will leave Nobber in County Meath at lunchtime on Wednesday.

After an overnight stop in the midlands on Wednesday night and Newcastle West on Thursday night, the tractors are expected in Killarney town centre just after lunchtime on Friday.

The ‘spectacular show’, now a regular feature of the Killarney summer, will bring the town to a standstill for around one hour.

On Saturday morning the group will depart Tony Wharton’s farm in Fossa before a nine-hour drive around the Ring of Kerry.

The run will finish with a spectacular drive through the Gap of Dunloe.

“We hope to pass through town around 3.30pm on Friday,” said local organiser, Tom Wharton, who is one of the six Killarney-based drivers who will undertake the 400km journey from County Meath to Killarney. “It is always a spectacular show.”

On arrival in Killarney, tractors will be joined by a group of classic cars that will depart Nobber at 9am that morning.
