OVER 25 teams vied for glory in the 25th-anniversary staging of the Ricky Kelly Memorial Pitch & Putt Tournament at the weekend. Sponsored by the Tatler Jack Bar, the popular event took place at Deerpark Pitch & Putt Club.

The three-ball scramble format provided some great scoring over the weekend. For the second year-in-a-row James Fleming was on the winning team as he joined forces on this occasion with both Creagh Courtney and Phillip O’Connor to win the event with a magnificent score of 31 under par and a score of 63 nett. That was one shot better than the team of Aidan and Kieran O’Keeffe along with Niall O’Mara who finished second on 64 nett.

The overall gross prize went to the Liebherr-sponsored team of John McGrath, David Maloney and David McIndoe Jnr with a score of 82 (26 under par). The mixed nett saw more success for the Fleming family with James’s brother Damien Fleming, Damien’s wife Sharon and brother-in-law David O’Donnell winning the prize with a score of 66 2/3. The non-members' prize saw some high-profile entries not least three Kerry senior players as Colm Cooper did battle with inter-county colleagues Brian Kelly and Jonathan Lyne (who played together on the same team) for the prize. In the end Colm teamed up with Jamie and Shane Doolan in a Tatler Jack Bar-sponsored team to win the prize with a score of 64 1/3 nett.

The prizes were presented at Deerpark on Monday night as part of a barbecue and evening of entertainment under the eventually arrived sunny weather. Traditional music group Meitheal along with singers Jackie O’Mahony and Donal Shine performed on the night as Ricky’s memory was once again honoured 25 years after his death in 1991 in the very tournament he was instrumental in starting.

“Deerpark would like to thank all who supported the event either by means of entering teams or by means of helping out which the festivities on Monday night. We look forward to 2017’s event with renewed vigour,” said Jason O’Connor of Deerpark Pitch & Putt Club.

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.
