SURVEY: Members of the Kilcummin Looking Good committee are encouraging locals to take part in a survey to help develop their three to five year plan for the village.

By Michelle Crean

Over 3,000 locals in Kilcummin are being asked to have an input into the locality's future by completing a survey to future proof their community.

The Kilcummin Looking Good (KLG) committee have contracted the services of O’Leary and Associates to prepare a three to five year plan for the village focussing on developing their community.

Infrastructure such as roads, footpaths, broadband etc., the aesthetics of the community such as green areas and signage, and most importantly the facilities within the community will all be on the agenda.

"This is an excellent opportunity for residents of Kilcummin to have their say in the planning process as the development of the area will impact you the most," Sinéad Collins, PRO - KLG, told the Killarney Advertiser.

"Due to the restrictions of COVID-19 and public meetings, we are asking people to take part in an online survey. A link to this survey will be available on our Facebook page: ‘Kilcummin Looking Good’ and is extremely user friendly."

However, she added that if locals are not able to avail of the survey via their social media site then contact Kilcummin Rural Development from 9am to 4pm on 064 6643357, Tony 087 6258641 or Sheila 087 7944679, and they will arrange for the survey to be posted to you.

"We will endeavour to send the survey to local organisations and community groups and we encourage as many people as possible to complete the survey as it is important that everyone has the opportunity to contribute to the future development of our parish."

The deadline for its completion is next Wednesday, September 30.

This community plan is kindly being funded by NEWKD CLG under the Leader programme and is also being supported by Kerry County Council, she added.

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.
