The Cathaoirleach of Kerry County Council, Cllr Jimmy Moloney, will travel to the United States next week for a number of engagements during the St Patrick’s Day period.

He begins his official visit at the weekend by travelling to Listowel’s Sister City of Shawnee in Kansas where he will dedicate the new Listowel Park. He will review the Shawnee St Patrick’s Day Parade on Sunday with Mayor Michelle Distler and meet members of Shawnee Chamber of Commerce, Council members, State representatives and the ‘Visit Shawnee’ Tourism Group.

Cllr Moloney will be in New York on Monday next for an evening meeting hosted by the American Ireland Chamber of Commerce in the Irish Consulate. The New York leg includes meetings with IDA Ireland and Tourism Ireland, and an official visit to the Ellis Island Memorial Park in New York Harbour as a guest of the Ellis Island Foundation’s President, Mr. Jesse Brackenberry. Here more than 3.5 million Irish immigrants were processed during its 63 years in operation from 1891 to 1954.

On St Patrick’s Day, the Cathaoirleach will attend a breakfast event with the new Mayor of New York, Mr. Eric Adams, at his residence in Gracie Mansion. He will also lay a wreath at the 9/11 Memorial with members of the New York Fire Department of Kerry descent and attend Mass in St Patrick’s Cathedral. He will later join members of the Kerry Association and Kerry Pipers on the traditional parade down 5th Avenue and attend a meeting of Irish diaspora groups hosted by Minister Eamon Ryan at the Irish Consulate.

On Friday (March 18), Cllr Moloney will attend a tourism briefing co-hosted by Tourism Ireland and Shannon Airport for the Tri State Travel Trade which features Kerry. That evening he will attend the Annual Kerry Association Dinner in Yonkers. He will be accompanied in the US by John Griffin, County Tourism Officer.

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.
