Social activist, advocate for the homeless and Jesuit priest, Fr Peter McVerry, is one of the guest speakers who'll take part in the Diocese of Kerry Mission taking place online this weekend.

From January 24 to 29, the Mission, called 'Be Christ’s Joy', will offer an opportunity for people to gather in reflection and prayer, online and in the home. Like the traditional Parish Mission, all are welcome to participate, inclusive of all age groups and those involved with church or those who have disengaged with church.

The elements of the Mission include a Mission booklet available online on dioceseofkerry.ie or in hard copy from the parish churches.

A schedule of Mission activities for each day Sunday to Friday invites participants to a morning reflection online, daily prayer, Mission Mass at 10.30am live-streamed from six different locations in the diocese, children’s pray and play online, evening reflection online, and a Mission talk each evening at 8pm.

Speakers for the week include John Connell, author, journalist and farmer on Sunday January 24, Martina Lehane Sheehan, spiritual guide, psychotherapist and author on Monday January 25, social activist, advocate for the homeless and Jesuit priest, Fr Peter McVerry on Tuesday January 26, Jane Mellet the Laudato Si’ Officer with Trocaire on Wednesday January 27, Br Richard Hendrick, Franciscan Brother, spiritual teacher, poet and blogger on Thursday January 28, and Olive Foley, widow of Axel Foley and ambassador for Children’s Bereavement Services, Limerick on Friday January 29.

Schools will be provided with class/activity plans. A YouthDoK Instagram competition for 16 to 30-year-olds invites them to submit their 'Vision of the Future' in art, poetry, photography or a one minute video. There is a prize for each category.

"Soon it will be a year since the Coronavirus first impacted on all our lives. A difficult year, but a year that leaves us with a good feeling too. Technology has made possible this Diocesan Mission. I thank the team at the diocesan pastoral centre for their good work. May the Mission be a time for reflecting together on the past year, evoking both gratitude for how our country has responded, and trust in God for what lies ahead," Bishop Ray Browne said.

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.
