The Killarney Advertiser fantasy football league is officially the biggest league of its kind in the county. The Brian James-sponsored competition, which was launched for the first time in 2017, now has 925 participants, more than any other league in Kerry.

With monthly prizes up for grabs and a €250 voucher for the overall winner in May, The Killarney Advertiser League (formerly Serie A-dvertiser) has quickly established itself as the most popular fantasy competition around.

Hugh Maguire from Ardfert was the latest Manager of the Month recipient and he picked up his €50 voucher at Brian James (Main Street, Killarney) last weekend. Hugh beat off stiff competition from David O’Neill and Alexander Kelly to claim the top spot with Leicester striker Jamie Vardy contributing 40 points as captain in the final gameweek of October.

Speaking at the prizegiving, Adam Moynihan of the Killarney Advertiser congratulated Hugh on his achievement and also expressed his gratitude to Brian O’Shea of Brian James, who has sponsored the competition since Day 1.

“We really can’t thank Brian James enough for their continued sponsorship,” he said. “The fantastic prizes on offer are a huge part of why our league has grown to be so big in such a short period of time.”

With Christmas on the horizon, it’s time to get in the party mood! Prepare your skin for the party season and give your confidence a boost – it’s your best accessory for your favourite party dress!

A CACI Synergy Non-Surgical Facial brings muscle toning to an advanced level. With 20 years of medical research behind it, micro current impulses will lift and tone the muscles of the face and neck area while improving the skin’s elasticity and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

The application of the hydra tone silicone mask gives a deep nourishing finish to the treatment that hydrates and tones, achieving a more youthful fresh glow. It combines micro-current rollers which help restore muscle tone and firmness with the hydra tone mask. This mask is infused with collagen, hyaluronic acid and rose water to deeply nourish and deliver a surge of moisture to the skin that will soothe and calm any skin redness and irritation. This treatment is perfect for special events and brides-to-be.

Our new CACI Synergy Facial includes a lot of light therapy throughout the 80 minute facial. During the winter there is less sunlight, so a light fusion treatment can be mood lifting and help you to get a healthy natural glow. Also one of the most effective ingredients for attaining a glowing complexion is vitamin C. Incorporating a product with vitamin C into your skincare routine will brighten, energise and clarify for naturally luminous looking skin. Sothys Detox Resurfacing Overnight Cream has anti-ageing stabilising vitamin C and oxygen like nasturtium plant extract and AHA for its exfoliation properties while you sleep for smoother skin that appears rested and visibly detoxified and brighter when you wake.

Easy collection options are available so you don’t have to leave your car or we will deliver it to you!

For more information to book a facial or to purchase a product, please call Jill on 064 6632966.

It’s no wonder Faha pupils have a big smile on their faces as this year’s Team Hope Shoebox Appeal is their biggest yet!

The children happily packed and wrapped 140 shoeboxes which will be sent to children in need throughout the world.

The school has been doing the Team Hope Shoebox Appeal for approximately six years when parent, Margaret Scully, initially contacted one of the SNAs, Delia O’ Shea, wondering if they’d be interested in taking part. Since then the appeal has been wholeheartedly supported by the pupils, staff and extended Faha NS community.

“This year has been the biggest yet with 140 shoeboxes collected and many more donations online,” Jerry Fitzgerald, Principal of Faha NS, said. “It is a learning experience for the children to realise that there are children just like themselves who may not be so fortunate and they really enjoy being given the opportunity to help out. They have great suggestions as to what to put in the shoeboxes and really put a lot of thought into it. The boxes are wrapped in Christmas paper which is also very exciting both for the children doing the wrapping as well for the children receiving the boxes.” However, he added that last year the COVID-19 pandemic brought about big changes and the physical shoeboxes were not collected. “Instead the children were able to do virtual shoeboxes or donate money. This cloud had a silver lining as this year people have both options and it makes it easier than ever to donate. The shoebox appeal always marks the start of Christmas at Faha NS and we are delighted to be able to help out. We are already looking to smash our record next year! Thanks to everyone who donated. The staff and students of Faha NS would like to wish everyone a Happy Christmas and a safe New Year 2022.”
