Council asks holidaymakers to follow public health guidelines



As the country continues to reopen for business and tourism Kerry County Council is visitors to play their part.

An increase in the numbers coming to the county, especially Killarney, has been recorded this week. And now they're being asked to play to practise social distancing, carry out regular hand washing, cover their mouth and nose when sneezing, to avoid congregating in large groups, handshaking and hugging, and to wear face masks where necessary.

“In Kerry, we have had extremely low levels of COVID-19 cases, and as restrictions begin to ease and we welcome visitors to the county, we are able to highlight the significant work that has been carried out by accommodation providers, shops and businesses, communities and Kerry County Council to continue to keep it that way,” Cathaoirleach of Kerry County Council, Cllr Patrick Connor Scarteen, explained.

“As Ireland’s prime tourism destination, we want everyone to know that we are open for business, but we are asking all visitors for their help to ensure that Kerry continues to be a safe, welcoming location for visitors.”

Chief Executive of Kerry County Council Moira Murrell pointed to the work carried out by all sectors making Kerry safe.

“Our Safe Destination Kerry Programme has seen significant work carried out by Kerry County Council to provide additional space on our footpaths and around our towns and villages for people to feel comfortable in. In addition, the Safe Destination Badge identifies tourism and retail premises in Kerry where over 3,000 staff have undergone specialised training on cleanliness, hygiene and customer interaction.

“We are mindful that people want to feel comfortable and safe on their holidays. In Kerry we can offer this, with safe streets, safe shops and safe hotels and guesthouses, and we are asking our guests to be mindful of the health guidelines and help us keep Kerry safe.”

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.
