THE classic movie The Dawn, which was written and directed by Killarney man Tom Cooper in 1936, was the first talkie made in Ireland and now it is poised to help generate funds to help saves lives in Killarney.

A fresh chapter in Irish movie history opened in December as the iconic film was given a whole new lease of life. Moviegoers were delighted to see it restored to its former glory at Cinema Killarney, owned by Mr Cooper’s grandson Tom Cooper, and the good news is it will be screened again in Cinema Killarney on Tuesday, January 17, Tuesday, January 24, and Tuesday, January 31, and Tuesday, February 7. Admission is €5 and all the money will go towards the Heart of Killarney project, which aims to see old Irish telephone boxes used to highlight the locations of, and house, defibrillators.

The first telephone box was established on Main Street in September and plans are in place for another, with the Woodlawn area proposed as the location of the next phone box. "We would like to pay a special thanks to the Cooper family and Cinema Killarney for selecting the Heart of Killarney as the beneficiary from the screenings of The Dawn,” said Damien Baker of Heart of Killarney. “Killarney has inspired towns across Ireland to role this idea out so we can look forward to seeing phone boxes play an important role in Ireland once again."

Tickets are available from the box office at Cinema Killarney.

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.
