Fans advised to arrive early for today’s Kerry v Mayo game

Gardai in Killarney will be operating an extensive security and traffic management plan today to ensure the safety of visiting fans from both sides.

Gardai anticipate that the majority of the traffic will arrive from the Tralee side, as Mayo supporters will use the western corridor via Limerick to arrive in Killarney.

Car parking facilities will be available near the rugby pitch on the northern side of the by-pass road.

“The preferred route for Mayo fans will be via Limerick and our traffic management plan has taken that in to account, both before the game and for the exits post-match,” sergeant Dermot O’Connell told the Killarney Advertiser. “We ask all people arriving from the Tralee side to head for the by-pass where there will be plenty of parking in the rugby grounds and stewards there to direct them.”

With over 30,000 ticketed fans, and countless without tickets, the Gardai are advising people to arrive early.

“Get into the stadium early,” added sergeant O’Connell. “There will be plenty of entertainment laid on by the GAA inside in the grounds.”

Security will be tight on all approach streets to the stadium with areas cordoned off at the Lewis Road and Rock Road access roads.

These roads will be closed to traffic and local residents will have to show their driving licences to gain access to local streets. In addition the Lewis Road will be used an evacuation route for emergency services and will be closed to traffic from 10am.

“People are advised not to bring bottles or umbrellas or anything that could be considered a weapon near the ground,” added O’Connell. “We will be confiscating such items.”

Disabled fans will be able to access specific parking at the Dalton’s Avenue entrance to the stadium.

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.

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.
