THE team at Daly’s SuperValu in Killarney saddled up along with other SuperValu stores across Kerry and Ireland to support the Ring of Kerry Charity Cycle. The Ring of Kerry is the largest one-day charity fundraising event in Munster and celebrated its 30th year last year.

Taking place on Saturday, July 2, the event welcomes thousands of leisure cyclists from across Ireland as they embark on a 180km journey along the spectacular Ring of Kerry to raise much needed funds for worthy Kerry-based causes.

Daly’s SuperValu owner Bill Daly said: “We are delighted to partner with the Ring of Kerry Cycle for 2016. Being an independent retailer, living and working in Killarney, we see at first hand the great community causes that are supported each year by the money raised and the benefit it brings to the local economy. We wish all participants and volunteers an enjoyable and safe event in 2016.”

Cathal Walshe, PRO of the Ring of Kerry Charity Cycle, added: “We’ve been working hard preparing for the 2016 edition of the Ring of Kerry Charity Cycle and this year’s event is shaping up to be the best yet. Not alone does this event benefit worthwhile charities at a local level, but bringing over 11,000 cyclists and their supporters to the area provides a huge local economic boost.”

SuperValu is on a mission to get the whole country cooking more and to build a healthier nation with its Good Food Karma Project.
The aim of the campaign is to get people cooking one more meal from scratch every week along with making key lifestyle choices around what they eat.

SuperValu is working with an army of foodies including celebrity chefs Kevin Dundon, Seafood chef Martin Shanahan and Sharon Hearne Smith, athletes David Gillick, Bernard Brogan and Anna Geary, The Happy Pear, Daniel Davey and Inspiring Foodies Conor Bereen, Marc Bereen, Duncan Maguire, Federico Riezzo and Ciaran McGonagle.

If you are in training for the Ring of Kerry or want some inspirational recipes with mealtime tips call into your Daly’s SuperValu or visit supervalu.ie. Join the Happy Pear brothers Stephen and David for a cooking demonstration on Saturday, July 2, at the New Street Car Park, Killarney, plus meet some of the SuperValu Food Academy suppliers.

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.
