Call for extremely dangerous junction to be urgently addressed



A Kerry County Councillor has called on Kerry County Council and the Department of Transport to address as a matter of priority the extremely dangerous Junction at Tullig Beg, Killorglin on the main Killorglin to Cromane road "before someone is killed or seriously injured".

Councillor Michael Cahill raised the matter at a recent meeting of the Council where he stated that this junction was one of the most dangerous in the county.

Speaking at the recent meeting, the Fianna Fáil Councillor said that the Cromane/Killorglin road was very busy and serviced a populated area. Large articulated lorries, contracted to bring mussels and oysters to France and Holland, also travel the road on a regular basis, he explained.

"I have raised this Death Trap 4 Cross Road Junction on numerous occasions over the years and I am now pleading with you to address the situation before someone is seriously injured or a life is lost," Cllr Councillor told the Council meeting. "I am aware of numerous accidents having occurred at this location over the years and this is a major health and safety issue that requires immediate attention."

Senior Roads Engineer Padraic Teahan gave the following response at the meeting.

"Improvement works at the junction of the L4033 and the L7506 local roads at Tulligbeg may be considered for funding under the Department of Transport’s Safety Improvement Works Grant for Regional and Local roads. This grant is primarily targeted at locations on the public road network that have a history of road traffic accidents. Therefore, data on the Road Safety Authority’s website indicating that there have been minor, serious or fatal accidents recorded on this section of Local Primary Road would be required to support an application to the Department for funding."

Following Councillor Cahill's proposal, it was agreed to make an application to the Department of Transport under the Safety Improvement Works Scheme for Regional and Local roads.

Detox Wrap will leave you feeling energised

It may be the last few weeks of the holidays but, it is no better time treat yourself to a body detox wrap.

This wrap is suitable for males and females.
This wrap will boost your energy levels and make you feel like yourself again. Having loads of BBQs and nights out or feeling bloated and sluggish, unmotivated.
This wrap is a great way to boost energy by increasing lymphatic drainage, which helps the body’s natural detox system to release bad toxins. By aiding the lymphatic system and increasing the negative, harmful toxins. Your body will immediately start to feel better, more motivated, and increased energy. Your skin will feel better and bring your glow back.

The process is having sea clay applied all over the body, followed by bandages wrapped in a specific way to lift and firm the skin and finally you are tucked up in a heated blanket….. to sweat out the negative toxins. following the treatment, you have a three-day detox, no tea, coffee, fried fatty foods, fizzy drinks, processed foods or even a shower to leave the active clay and get to work on the lymphatic system.

This is a seriously great treatment, that really works if you follow the process. As the heat from the blanket helps to open your pores on the body the sea clay can go into the deep layers of the skin, when you unwrap the clay is trapped in the skin and its ingredients get to work.

Bentonite has excellent drainage properties for full detox and skin clarification.

Magnesium sulphate stimulates peripheral skin circulation, exfoliating and anti-inflammatory.
Magnesium Chloride has valuable mineral salt and permits cellular balance, combats stress and fluid retention, and has anti-bacterial properties.

Zinc oxide, bacterium properties and anti-inflammatory.

Sodium Chloride detoxifies tissues and tightens the skin.

They work best the longer they are left on the skin and the longer you detox. I wouldn’t claim a 2-hour treatment can do amazing results without the homework. The clay isn’t dirty looking on the skin, it looks more like a cloud of chalky dust on the outer skin, the active properties have been absorbed into the skin.
The skin may feel a little different while the clay is working, but the results are worth it. It’s a great treatment after weight loss, pregnancy, liposuction or just re-energises you as a whole.

Puck Goat removed from platform in searing heat

Organisers of Puck Fair have taken King Puck down from his platform to protect the wild mountain goat from the heat.

Today mark’s day two of the three-day fair in Killorglin town. As part of the fair’s tradition a wild mountain goat presides over the town from his tall platform over the course of the three days.

Organisers employ a dedicated vet to look after the goat and a team of experienced goat handlers are also on duty for the duration of the festival.

There is also a temperature monitoring device on the platform.

As temperatures hit 29 degrees today (Thursday), the vet and handlers decided it was safer for the goat to be removed from the platform for the rest of the day.

“He is currently resting in the shade,” spokesperson Marcella O’Connor told the Killarney Advertiser. “The handlers were monitoring him in case it got too hot, the decision was made to take him down, and the vet says he is happy.”

A decision will be made tomorrow (Friday) on the goat’s return to the platform for the final day of the fair.
