€400,000 has been granted to the Gleneagle INEC Arena to use in the employment of performers, artists, technicians, creatives and performance support staff for gigs next month.

Funded by the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media the gigs - which will provide a total of 893 days of employment for 205 people - will take place in December under the Live Performance Support Scheme.

The line-up of concerts includes well known acts - Picture This, Gavin James, Aslan, The Academic and Hermitage Green. Rising stars Junior Brother, Brad Heidi, Moncrieff and Bird on the Wire are also in the mix. Irish traditional music features strongly with performances by Celtic Steps and The O’Neill Sisters and also The Sibin Orchestra featuring Seamus Begley, Méabh Ní Bheaglaoich, Muireann Nic Amhlaoibh, Éilís Kennedy, Pauline Scanlon, Laura Kerr, Donogh Hennessy, Jeremy Spencer and Gerry O’Beirne.

While live audiences will not be permitted under the Plan for Living with COVID-19, the performances will be recorded for either streaming or promotional purposes.

“Behind the scenes of every gig is a hardworking team of technical and support personnel," Mark Egan, Director of the Gleneagle INEC Arena said.

"The Live Performance Support Scheme allows us to provide employment for performers but also for the vital cog of technicians and performance support staff that make live music gigs possible. It also will provide us with live music content that can be streamed online or used to promote Ireland’s live music industry both at home and overseas. We would like to thank the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media for their support. We would also like to thank the various artists that have reduced their performance costs in order to make these gigs happen. These are unprecedented times for the live performance industry and support schemes such as this are vital to ensure the industry remains intact post COVID.”

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.
