Killarney’s top music venue reopened over Easter weekend after 760 days. It was one of the first pubs to close as a result of the pandemic ahead of the Government's pandemic announcement in March 2020.

The town centre pub did not reopen during last year’s restrictions as owner Patsy Sheehan and his team decided to refurbish the premises.

The doors finally reopened last weekend and while Killarney was busy with tourists enjoying the long weekend, it was mainly locals who visited the Killarney Grand.

“It was like you flicked a switch and it was all back to normal again,” Patsy told the Killarney Advertiser.

“The locals missed it but they loved the new additions and at the same time loved that it is still The Grand and not much has changed,” he added.

“My hands are sore from shaking peoples’ hands but the goodwill of the locals and the people of the town has been fantastic."

Two new features include an underground tunnel linking both sides of the dance floor and several new photos of famous Irish musicians strategically placed on the walls of the music bar.

“They [locals] loved the corridor and all the photos,” Patsy added.

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.

To book an appointment or to find out more information, call 064 6632966.

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.
