EXCITEMENT is building in anticipation of the first-ever Give it a Go event in Killarney. Hidden Hearing has announced it would sponsor the event, which takes place in June. Organised by Active Retirement Ireland and The Gleneagle Hotel, Give it a Go takes place from June 13 to 17. It celebrates ageing and the freedom and opportunities retirement can offer.
Participants will have the chance to try out a huge range of activities including motorcycling, surfing, fishing, yoga and golf. And after a lengthy day of action and adventure, there will be live entertainment every evening, including performances by Brendan Shine, Red Hurley, The Ronan Collins Showband Show and HIYA Entertainment. Give it a Go is about experiencing new things, finding new hobbies and interests, meeting up with friends old and new, laughing, dancing and have fun!
“We’re delighted to sponsor the first ever Give It A Go event in Killarney this summer,” said Dolores Madden, marketing director, Hidden Hearing.
“We encourage everyone to get out and ‘Give It A Go’, no matter what. Hearing loss can affect every aspect of a person’s life, what things aren't you doing, enjoying or experiencing because a person can't hear to their full potential. Give It A Go celebrates life, as does Hidden Hearing, and that’s why we are proud to sponsor such a celebration.”

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.
