Killarney Camera Club's latest photo competition was themed 'Colourful Town' and yet again amateur photographers had lots of images to share.

There was a variety of entries with images from near and far including Dingle and Cork.

Julia Deady won the Unrestricted category and Noel O’Neill was named winner of the Novice category. The top three winners in each category were:

Unrestricted category:

1st Place: Julia Deady, Image 6, Cobh, 145 points
Joint 2nd Place: Thomas Bradley, Image 20, Street Colour, 141 points
Joint 2nd Place: Noel O’Neill, Image 10, Dingle Bay and Marina Jan 2021-0927, 141 points

3rd Place: Tanja Fischer, Image 5, Aarhus, 136 points

“I had to scale a five foot wall to get a good position," Julia, who gave an insight into her winning image, said.
"The top of the wall was quite narrow so I hastily took this photo. I realised later that I could have achieved the same shot from The Commodore Hotel. I learnt the hard way!”

Her image was taken with a Canon 80D, 24-105 L series f/4 lens with an aperture of F8 and shutter speed of 1/100, while the ISO was set at 200 and the image was taken at 6pm in the evening.

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.

To book an appointment or to find out more information, call 064 6632966.

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.
