Staff and parents from Lissivigeen National School organised a coffee morning in the Royal Hotel to remember 20-month-old Lily Ellen Daly, daughter of Michael and Caroline Daly from Lisheenacanna, Ballyhar, who passed away in February last year from complications with Pulmonary Vein Stenosis (PVS).

Lily Ellen's final journey from home to Cork hospital was made using the Irish Community Air Ambulance (ICAA) so the event was to raise awareness and necessary funds for the charity service.

Initially the school was organising a non-uniform day to help the children understand the importance of the service, Lily Ellen's aunt Margaret Daly, a Senior Infant teacher at Lissivigeen NS, told the Killarney Advertiser.

"We've been teaching the children about the Irish Community Air Ambulance all week," she explained.
"They're the future paramedics and pilots and it's about teaching them about the service which is not Government funded. Initially it was going to be a non-uniform day but the Parents Association kindly decided to run a coffee morning alongside it."

She added that the support yesterday was "just phenomenal".

"The school community in Lissivigeen is remarkable, there's something very special there. People were dropping in things for the raffle and vouchers all week and donating. It's about creating awareness for the kids and to keep the memory of Lily very much alive."

She also thanked the staff at the Royal Hotel who were "amazing" on the day and added that Donie Lucey from ICAA will be at the school today (Friday) to speak to the children about the important service.

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.
