What a gathering it was for Jackie Foley as 55 members of his family came together for a very special birthday celebration.

Jackie, originally from Beaufort but living in Countess Grove for 45 years, turned 80 on March 5 and enjoyed a celebration in Killarney Golf & Fishing Club last weekend.

His life-long dream is to travel to New York and knowing this, his family surprised him with a ticket to mark the milestone birthday.

He's now planning to travel there in October with his daughter Karen and granddaughter Emma to see Ellis Island, the immigrant inspection station where his father went when he moved to America.

Jackie, who worked in Liebherr as a fitter from age 16 to 65, was joined at the sit down meal by his children Shane, Norma and Karen, his siblings Denis (Kenmare) and Mick and Noreen (Beaufort), his in laws, his nine grandchildren aged from 25 to eight-years-old, Cillian, Emma, Grace, Lillie, Jean, Noelle, Paddy, Jack and Sarah, and many others.

"We surprised him with a ticket to New York," his daughter Norma told the Killarney Advertiser.

"He always wanted to go to New York as his father went through Ellis Island, so he'd love a tour of it."

And she added that he really loved the party.

"He was the last man standing. He doesn't drink and has been a pioneer all his life. We have to celebrate these things if the last two years are anything to go by."

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.
