This weekend a very unique challenge is being put to the public all to benefit a good cause.

The Chili Cauli Cup Challenge is being run by the team at the Real Burger Killorglin and it promises to be hot!

The idea is to get customers to try the challenge to see if they can eat the chili dish - and all proceeds will go towards local man TJ O'Connor's 54321 Challenge.

Chef Mohammad Anzy saw fellow chef Chad Byrne raising much need funds for one of TJ's chosen charities the Skellig Stars, and asked how he could help out.

"He has created a heat seeking missile of Chili and cauliflower," Chad explained to the Killarney Advertiser.
"With TJ doing his challenge we said we would challenge the people of Kerry to come out and try our dish of crispy cauliflower with hot sauce!"

If you're up for the challenge this weekend then go to the Real Burger or indeed have it in O'Sheas Pub Killorglin, he added.

"It's vegan, organic and gluten free. Knowing it all goes to a great cause your lips might be on fire but you will be happy munching away."

The 54321 Challenge was due to begin on Thursday.

However, due to the arrival of Storm Ellen, in the interest of safety of volunteers they had to make changes to the start of the challenge this year.

They began with the Day 4 Challenge instead with a 70km cycle indoors on turbo trainers by participants and will continue with the rest of their adventures over the coming days to raise funds for this year's charities Kerry Hospice Foundation, Skellig Stars and Enable Ireland Kerry. To give an online donation to the cause go to www.54321challenge.org/make-a-donation.

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.
