Their kindness knows no bounds as staff from one local hotel teamed up once again to raise funds for charity. Led by Executive Chef, Noel Enright, the kitchen team at The Lake Hotel not only completed a series of 5k events but the male staff also opted to change their look - for the month of November - by taking part in the Movember challenge all in aid of the Palliative Care Unit in University Hospital Kerry (UHK).

Each participant’s entry fee will be donated to the chosen charity. A GoFundMe page: 'Lake Hotel raise funds for Palliative Care Unit' has also been created to help raise funds for this very worthy cause.

Palliative care is an approach that improves the quality of life of patients and their families facing the problem associated with life-threatening illness, through the prevention and relief of suffering. Kerry Specialist Palliative Care is a fully integrated service providing care to patients across all settings; home, nursing home, community hospitals, acute hospital and specialist inpatient unit. The hub of the service is the specialist palliative care unit which is attached to UHK and has access to all its services. The palliative care team work together to provide the best possible holistic care for patients, their families and loved ones.

“We are delighted to be raising funds for this very worthy cause," Noel Enright from The Lake Hotel said.

"The Palliative Care Unit do such tremendous work and we look forward to making our donation to them. Last year we raised funds for Temple Street Children’s Hospital and we also completed a sky dive in aid of Kerry Mountain Rescue, we’re excited to see what next year will bring.” As a seasonal hotel, The Lake Hotel will remain closed until January 21, 2021. During this time, The Lake Hotel reservations team remain fully operational and are happy to assist with any queries for 2021 and beyond. Christmas vouchers may be purchased either at the hotel or via phone/online 064 6631035

Detox Wrap will leave you feeling energised

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.

Puck Goat removed from platform in searing heat

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.
