Friends may not have been able to join the celebrations due to current restrictions but that didn't stop baby Odhran Long's big day going ahead in St Mary's Cathedral on Saturday last.

The little tot from The Park, who is now eight-weeks-old, was christened by Fr Jim Lenihan, surrounded by his parents Martina Breen Long and David Long, grandparents John Breen, Ann Galvin and Charlie Long.

Godparents were Martina's nephew Quentin Breen and David's sister Marissa Long.

"Marissa currently lives in Australia so she wasn't able to travel over," Martina told the Killarney Advertiser this week. "I'd say that if it wasn't for COVID she would have been there as she is due a visit home. David's mom Ann stood in for her."

The couple were joined by 17 family members for the very special occasion. In what would normally be a bigger occasion with friends joining the celebrations, Martina told the Killarney Advertiser that it would have been nice for them to be able to come but with current restrictions it just wasn't possible.

And Martina's sister-in-law Breda was busy on the day capturing it all on camera to share with friends and family afterwards.

"I wanted to get it done in case there was a second lockdown," Martina, who is originally from Pinewood, said.

"It was a lovely ceremony. We all enjoyed a fabulous meal in the Dromhall Hotel afterwards and I have to thank Michael Talbot who is one of the managers there."

Two very important people in her life were very much missed on the day, her mom Peggy and her sister Jacqueline, who have sadly passed away, she added.

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.
