Last week at the Innisfallen Hotel, Irish and Ukrainian musicians came together for a joint music evening. The idea came about from amateur musician Ciaran Ryan.

MUSIC TO THEIR EARS: Liz Lucey and Kevin Tarrant making music together at the Innisfallen Hotel.

SWEET SOUNDS: Mary Daly Claudia Stocki Geraldine Guilfoyle and Ciaran Ryan playing music at the Innisfallen Hotel.

TUNES: Mary Daly Geraldine Guilfoyle Ciaran Ryan Billy Joy and Noel Lucey playing some trad tunes at the Innisfallen Hotel.

CONCERT: Ukrainian Tetiana Neliepova singing at the Innisfallen Hotel during a music concert last week.

“We are an informal band that gathers every couple of weeks to play music," Ciaran Ryan said.

"We don't have a name, but you can call us 'Le Chéile' which means "together" in Irish. We don't plan what we play, we just play what comes to mind or what someone has to offer in the evening"

Ronnie Moore added that they "never play for money, just for fun usually about every two weeks".

"Regarding the repertoire, that is never organised. Someone just suggests the next tune as we go along!” he said.

Ukrainians, who love music and singing, really liked the impromptu concert. After Irish musicians, Ukrainians took microphones and guitars and sang several folk and modern compositions.

“We all very much enjoyed your music. You have great talent. I think folk and traditional music is linked no matter where in the world it is played. It is about sharing emotions and our common human bond," Ciaran added.

Ukrainians offered to play a Ukrainian song together with Irish musicians. Ronnie Moore instantly read the notes and picked up the melody. Everyone was delighted with this lightning-fast duo of Evgenia Omelchenko and Ronnie Moore.

“We absolutely loved your singing and your music in general - the flute was beautiful. The singing was full of feeling and sounded professional. We all really enjoyed the evening and it was an amazing feeling to be able to communicate through music. We think you are all inspired to have experienced what you have experienced and still welcome us and show such good spirits. It is an example of what human beings can endure. It was a joyful evening with an awareness of much underlying sadness. Thank you all for that," Ronnie said.

Needless to say we all know what cellulite looks like, but there are many ways to reduce its appearance and help us look and feel better about it.

Yes, people often assume it’s down to a weight issue but it is associated with diet and exercise. It can affect all ages, male and female. There are many ways to help reduce and eliminate it.

Nothing can substitute for eating a healthy diet and getting enough exercise. Just as with other signs of ageing, cellulite is best managed first and foremost by focusing on maintaining a healthy weight long term. But certain topical treatments may help it become less noticeable and improve skin’s overall appearance, if used regularly. Dry body brushing is one technique to try by brushing upwards every day towards the heart for increased blood circulation.

Using anti-cellulite products can help if you are doing regular exercise and watching your diet, but if you feel you need a boost to get you headed in the right direction, there is a few different salon treatments that can be of benefit.

The Universal Contour Body Wrap is a great treatment which results in inch loss due to the detoxing effect of the sea clay or also the Electro Cellulite Massage rollers (ECM) by CACI Machine, which is a 12-session course over four weeks, this is recommended for desired results.

Pilates is always an amazing lifestyle choice. Having the toning tables for the past 30 years in Killarney, we are lucky to hear the amazing results from our clients past and present. Some have even been with us since we started! The male and female reviews have reported reduced cellulite with weekly appointments, improved posture, increased energy and mostly reduced cellulite.

Two Kerry-based car dealers are part of a national campaign to provide essential aid for Ukraine.

Donagh Hickey Motors in Rathmore and Adam’s of Tralee are the two local garages that have signed up for the project.

Under the scheme, the garages will be used as collection hubs for essential equipment that will be transported to the war torn country.

“We have a very large and loyal customer base and we are appealing through them to make donations,” Adam’s of Tralee General Manager, Marcus O’Shea, told the Killarney Advertiser.

“Any dealer could have signed up for this but we are one of only two in Kerry to do so.”

The garages, following advice from humanitarian agencies in Ukraine, have created a very specific list of what is urgently needed out there.

These include generators, solar battery chargers, batteries, power banks, flashlights, drones and tablets.

Medical equipment like First Aid kits (NATO standard) and other medical items are also sought.

People can assist by either dropping goods to the two garages or by making a donation via www.safeharbourforukraine.org.
