PUT your pedal power to the test at the Killarney Cycling Festival which takes place this Saturday, August 27. If the climbs don’t take your breath away the scenery certainly will!

Cyclists can choose from two tantalising routes, the Wrong Way Round or the gruelling Hard Way Round. Both routes circle the spectacular Iveragh Peninsula, taking in some of the most spectacular vistas on the planet.

The Donal Walsh LiveLife Foundation is the official charity of the Killarney Cycling Festival. Cyclists have the option of donating directly to the charity when registering. Registration costs €55 and includes access to the food stops and the post cycle party at The Gleneagle Hotel with live entertainment and a barbeque.

The Wrong Way Round is 160km long. It departs from The Gleneagle hotel and tackles Molls Gap first before heading for the scenic South West via Sneem. From there on the route is familiar passing Waterville, Caherciveen, Glenbeigh and Killorglin.

The more challenging Hard Way Round is 180km long and diverges from the Wrong Way Round by taking a right for Ballaghbeama through the heart of Kerry to Ballaghoisin, then there’s a further detour around the stunning Skellig Ring before rejoining the main troop on the road to Caherciveen.

Bring the cycling season to a close with either one of these truly rewarding cycles. To register visit www.killarneycyclingfestival.com for more information email info@killarneycyclingfestival.com

It may sound too good to be true but fat dissolving injections are as effective as the name suggests.

They are administered by our in-house Dr. Micheal Flynn who has been attending our salon for the past 10 years. It is the double chin and neck area that is treated and is suitable for both men and women. If you haven’t heard of fat dissolving, it is a very popular and relatively new treatment that is used to target stubborn pockets of fat on the jaw line and chin area. The injection dissolves and eliminates fat cells in a safe and effective way, making it perfect for dealing with stubborn fat that simply won’t budge with exercise.

The main ingredient is a fat dissolving substance sodium deoxycholate, which is found naturally in the body. This is injected into the treatment area which over time will destroy the fat cells. These are then removed from the body by its own lymphatic system, a complex network that rids the body of unwanted toxins and waste.

It is important to understand that fat dissolving injections are not a weight loss treatment. The injections should only be used on people who are a healthy size or carrying a little extra weight. It’s most effective on the pockets of fat stored under the jawline, known as the double chin, a migration of fat cells from the cheeks to the jaw line.

The injections work at a slow pace. It can take serval weeks for full results, but once it’s gone, it’s gone. The results are permanent, once you don’t gain a massive amount of weight.

The next clinic is Monday August 22. To book an appointment or more information, call Jill on 064 6632966.

Six members of the Killarney Valley Classic and Vintage Club will set out from County Meath on Wednesday on vintage tractors.

They are participating in the annual Eastern Vintage Club’s Ring of Kerry Tractor Run which is raising funds for the Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association.

Over 50 vintage tractors, including the six Killarney examples, will leave Nobber in County Meath at lunchtime on Wednesday.

After an overnight stop in the midlands on Wednesday night and Newcastle West on Thursday night, the tractors are expected in Killarney town centre just after lunchtime on Friday.

The ‘spectacular show’, now a regular feature of the Killarney summer, will bring the town to a standstill for around one hour.

On Saturday morning the group will depart Tony Wharton’s farm in Fossa before a nine-hour drive around the Ring of Kerry.

The run will finish with a spectacular drive through the Gap of Dunloe.

“We hope to pass through town around 3.30pm on Friday,” said local organiser, Tom Wharton, who is one of the six Killarney-based drivers who will undertake the 400km journey from County Meath to Killarney. “It is always a spectacular show.”

On arrival in Killarney, tractors will be joined by a group of classic cars that will depart Nobber at 9am that morning.
