Jessie Buckley’s Hollywood career is only starting according to those who know her best.

Orna Cleary of Killarney Musical Society, who nurtured a young Jessie as a child actor in Killarney, said she is “only in the infancy of her career".

Jessie missed out on her first Oscar at last weekend’s Academy Awards. She was nominated for her role in the 2021 psychological Netflix drama 'The Lost Daughter'.

Ariana Debose won the Best Supporting Actress award on Sunday night, but Jessie’s loss is no cause for disappointment.

“She has a massive road ahead of her,” Orna told the Killarney Advertiser. “It is only the beginning, I believe she is still in the early part of her career. Look at what she has achieved in the last four or five years, the movies she has starred in, the people she has performed with, she is only in the infancy of her journey.”

Meanwhile, Mayor Marie Moloney hopes to organise a Civic Reception for Jessie the next time she is at home in Killarney. There is a Kerry County Council protocol in place for such receptions.

Mayor Moloney, a close friend of the Buckley family, confirmed to the Killarney Advertiser that she is to write to the powers that be and apply for the Civic Reception.

“Of course we are all a little disappointed that she did not win, but the nomination itself is a huge achievement,” the Mayor told the Killarney Advertiser.

“This is only the first of many Oscar nominations for this very talented young lady. The whole of Killarney is very proud of her.”

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.
