IT'S been a case of congratulations all round for our Kerry Rose Danielle O’Sullivan when she returned to work in the Killarney Grand this week after clinching the coveted title to go forward and represent the county in this year’s Rose of Tralee International Festival.

Law student Danielle from Killarney, sponsored by Killarney Grand, emerged victorious from 31 participants at the Kerry Rose Selection in Ballyroe Heights Hotel, Tralee, last Friday night. Danielle was announced the winner by host Daithi O Sé at the 2016 Kerry Rose Selection at the Ballyroe Heights Hotel.

Also attending the event were Kerry Roses from previous years, and the 2016 Limerick and Clare Roses.

Danielle is currently studying for her master’s degree in human rights law in the University of Limerick, and plans on qualifying as a solicitor when she finishes. Danielle is an avid sports enthusiast having played Gaelic football with Killarney Legion for a number of years, and is also a keen martial artist.

The new Kerry Rose has a black belt in tae kwon do and has represented her county and country successfully both nationally and internationally. The 23-year-old is passionate about mental health campaigning and is currently the project leader for mental health as part of the US Embassy's Youth Council.

The Roses enjoyed many events including a night out in Killarney visiting the Nathan Carter at The Gleneagle Hotel, dancing in the Killarney Grand Hotel, attended a night at the Kingdom Greyhound Stadium in Tralee. The ladies also enjoyed taking part in the Tralee Pieta House Darkness into Light Walk.

Detox Wrap will leave you feeling energised

It may be the last few weeks of the holidays but, it is no better time treat yourself to a body detox wrap.

This wrap is suitable for males and females.
This wrap will boost your energy levels and make you feel like yourself again. Having loads of BBQs and nights out or feeling bloated and sluggish, unmotivated.
This wrap is a great way to boost energy by increasing lymphatic drainage, which helps the body’s natural detox system to release bad toxins. By aiding the lymphatic system and increasing the negative, harmful toxins. Your body will immediately start to feel better, more motivated, and increased energy. Your skin will feel better and bring your glow back.

The process is having sea clay applied all over the body, followed by bandages wrapped in a specific way to lift and firm the skin and finally you are tucked up in a heated blanket….. to sweat out the negative toxins. following the treatment, you have a three-day detox, no tea, coffee, fried fatty foods, fizzy drinks, processed foods or even a shower to leave the active clay and get to work on the lymphatic system.

This is a seriously great treatment, that really works if you follow the process. As the heat from the blanket helps to open your pores on the body the sea clay can go into the deep layers of the skin, when you unwrap the clay is trapped in the skin and its ingredients get to work.

Bentonite has excellent drainage properties for full detox and skin clarification.

Magnesium sulphate stimulates peripheral skin circulation, exfoliating and anti-inflammatory.
Magnesium Chloride has valuable mineral salt and permits cellular balance, combats stress and fluid retention, and has anti-bacterial properties.

Zinc oxide, bacterium properties and anti-inflammatory.

Sodium Chloride detoxifies tissues and tightens the skin.

They work best the longer they are left on the skin and the longer you detox. I wouldn’t claim a 2-hour treatment can do amazing results without the homework. The clay isn’t dirty looking on the skin, it looks more like a cloud of chalky dust on the outer skin, the active properties have been absorbed into the skin.
The skin may feel a little different while the clay is working, but the results are worth it. It’s a great treatment after weight loss, pregnancy, liposuction or just re-energises you as a whole.

Puck Goat removed from platform in searing heat

Organisers of Puck Fair have taken King Puck down from his platform to protect the wild mountain goat from the heat.

Today mark’s day two of the three-day fair in Killorglin town. As part of the fair’s tradition a wild mountain goat presides over the town from his tall platform over the course of the three days.

Organisers employ a dedicated vet to look after the goat and a team of experienced goat handlers are also on duty for the duration of the festival.

There is also a temperature monitoring device on the platform.

As temperatures hit 29 degrees today (Thursday), the vet and handlers decided it was safer for the goat to be removed from the platform for the rest of the day.

“He is currently resting in the shade,” spokesperson Marcella O’Connor told the Killarney Advertiser. “The handlers were monitoring him in case it got too hot, the decision was made to take him down, and the vet says he is happy.”

A decision will be made tomorrow (Friday) on the goat’s return to the platform for the final day of the fair.
