A much loved favourite Killarney cafe - which unexpectedly closed earlier this year - is to make a big comeback when it reopens its doors next week under new ownership.

 

A date for early to mid-week next week has been set for Jam's reopening and the new owners have even hired some of the original staff and plan to keep it as close to the original service as possible.

Due to the current Level 3 restrictions, the business, now called 'Jam Cáfe' in Old Market Lane, will first operate as a take-away service followed by a full opening once the Government gives the go ahead.

The business was acquired by the owners of TOBA and they've big plans to source produce locally to help further sustain local jobs.

"We're delighted to be reopening," Darragh Walshe, owner of TOBA told the Killarney Advertiser yesterday (Thursday).

"It's such a cornerstone business in Killarney. I know from talking to people around town how important it is for Killarney. We had TOBA and we always thought it'd be great to have a second business in Killarney if the right opportunity came up. When Jam became available we were lucky enough to get the winning bid. We want to reopen the business as it was and do everything that Jam were doing and meet the standards that were set by the previous owners."

KEEPING IT LOCAL

With uncertainty over COVID, Darragh explained that keeping it local is now more important than ever.

"We are going to use local suppliers including Ballyhar Foods, O'Shea's Fruit and Veg, Spillane's Seafood and John Lane for meat and dry goods amongst others."

They have hired four staff to date including Jam's new Manager Deirdre Casey from Killarney and Head Chef is Shirley O'Sullivan. But, he explained that more staff will be part of the cafe's future going forward.

"We've plans to employ 10 to 12 people. We're starting with a base of four and will bring in new people in the coming weeks and months as the lockdown period eases. We've some exciting plans in place over the next few weeks which will be announced shortly."

It may sound too good to be true but fat dissolving injections are as effective as the name suggests.

They are administered by our in-house Dr. Micheal Flynn who has been attending our salon for the past 10 years. It is the double chin and neck area that is treated and is suitable for both men and women. If you haven’t heard of fat dissolving, it is a very popular and relatively new treatment that is used to target stubborn pockets of fat on the jaw line and chin area. The injection dissolves and eliminates fat cells in a safe and effective way, making it perfect for dealing with stubborn fat that simply won’t budge with exercise.

The main ingredient is a fat dissolving substance sodium deoxycholate, which is found naturally in the body. This is injected into the treatment area which over time will destroy the fat cells. These are then removed from the body by its own lymphatic system, a complex network that rids the body of unwanted toxins and waste.

It is important to understand that fat dissolving injections are not a weight loss treatment. The injections should only be used on people who are a healthy size or carrying a little extra weight. It’s most effective on the pockets of fat stored under the jawline, known as the double chin, a migration of fat cells from the cheeks to the jaw line.

The injections work at a slow pace. It can take serval weeks for full results, but once it’s gone, it’s gone. The results are permanent, once you don’t gain a massive amount of weight.

The next clinic is Monday August 22. To book an appointment or more information, call Jill on 064 6632966.

Six members of the Killarney Valley Classic and Vintage Club will set out from County Meath on Wednesday on vintage tractors.

They are participating in the annual Eastern Vintage Club’s Ring of Kerry Tractor Run which is raising funds for the Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association.

Over 50 vintage tractors, including the six Killarney examples, will leave Nobber in County Meath at lunchtime on Wednesday.

After an overnight stop in the midlands on Wednesday night and Newcastle West on Thursday night, the tractors are expected in Killarney town centre just after lunchtime on Friday.

The ‘spectacular show’, now a regular feature of the Killarney summer, will bring the town to a standstill for around one hour.

On Saturday morning the group will depart Tony Wharton’s farm in Fossa before a nine-hour drive around the Ring of Kerry.

The run will finish with a spectacular drive through the Gap of Dunloe.

“We hope to pass through town around 3.30pm on Friday,” said local organiser, Tom Wharton, who is one of the six Killarney-based drivers who will undertake the 400km journey from County Meath to Killarney. “It is always a spectacular show.”

On arrival in Killarney, tractors will be joined by a group of classic cars that will depart Nobber at 9am that morning.
