This week the Killarney Advertiser welcomed Business Development professional Chris Davies to their growing team.
The Killarney native, who is well connected in town, has plenty of experience of developing and executing successful sales and marketing strategies.
After graduating from Cork Institute of Technology with a degree in Business and Information Systems, Chris moved to Dublin to further his career. There he worked with Group GTI and gradireland, the number one graduate careers publishing company in Ireland and the UK.
For the past two years Chris was the Business Development Manager for Gamma Location Intelligence, a leading provider of Geographical Information Systems in Ireland. Chris recently moved home to Killarney to be closer to family and is the latest addition to the Killarney Advertiser Team, taking up the role of Business Development Manager.
Chris believes in building strong mutual relationships with clients.
“The key to success in any business environment is a strong work ethic and the ability to truly listen and understand a client’s pain, and then working hard to address their issues the best way you know how."
Chris is also working towards a postgrad degree in digital marketing and has a great understanding of both online and offline advertising. When Chris isn’t working or studying you will find him playing football with the Killarney Legion or enjoying the outdoors with family and friends.
“I am delighted to be joining the Killarney Advertiser. Just this week the Chamber of Commerce released a survey that shows what most locals already know, the Advertiser is the the go-to publication for people looking to know what’s going on in Killarney. The Advertiser brand is synonymous with the town and to be a part of a business with such a great reputation and tradition in Killarney is very exciting. The editorial, design and sports departments in the Killarney Advertiser are second to none and we have some fantastic new media products in the pipeline for 2021. I have spent almost all of my time this week on the phone, talking to local business about the challenges they are facing with COVID-19. I am looking forward to working alongside many of these business owners and marketing managers in Killarney to create advertising strategies and campaigns that will help them navigate through these testing times."

Kieran Donaghy has labelled news reports that he is to become the manager of the Roscommon football team as “absolute rubbish”.
Several news outlets, including locally based media, ran stories on Monday night saying the four-time All-Ireland was set to take over as the Roscommon boss.
Almost as quick as the news reports were published Donaghy took to Twitter to correct them.
“Absolute rubbish,” he tweeted.
“I did not speak to one single person associated with Roscommon GAA. What has happened to fact checking a story these days.”
Donaghy has been part of the Armagh county set-up for the last two seasons. He is also preparing for another season in the Irish Basketball Superleague with Tralee Warriors at the age of 39.

The immune system is precisely that — a system. To function well, it requires stability.
While there is no magic bullet for increasing immunity, there are ways to keep your immune system strong so that you are better prepared to fight off infections and heal quickly.
As long as your immune system is running smoothly, you don’t notice that it’s there, but if it stops working properly – because it’s weak or can’t fight particularly aggressive germs – you get ill.
Without an immune system, we would have no way to fight harmful things that enter our body from the outside or harmful changes that occur inside our body. Here are five ways to ensure you support a good immune system coming into the wintery months:
1. Eat More Vegetables
While all vegetables have health benefits, some pack a more powerful immune-boosting punch than others. Broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, brussels sprouts, kale, and other cruciferous vegetables are rich in fibre, phytochemicals, vitamins, and minerals. Vegetables such as sweet potatoes, carrots, spinach and tomatoes are rich in beta-carotene (vitamin A), which helps regulate the immune system and protect against infections.
2. Eat Balanced Meals
Include all macronutrients in your meals. Protein is particularly important for healing and recovery. Protein sources include leaner sources of meat, chicken, turkey, fish, eggs, milk, beans, soy, nuts and seeds. These foods are also good sources of zinc, a mineral that promotes healthy immune function and aids in wound healing. Healthy fats are also essential to support our immune health. Try to include a variety of monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats in your daily diet. These are found in avocados, fatty fish, olive oil, nuts, and seeds. These foods provide good fats but are also rich in phytonutrients and fat-soluble vitamins. For example, a small handful of nuts such as almonds is a great source of vitamin E. Wild-caught salmon is one of the only foods naturally rich in vitamin D. Fatty fish are also rich in essential fats called omega-3s, which are known for their multiple health benefits.
3. Regular Exercise
Exercise is one of the main aspects that support a healthy lifestyle. Regular exercise promotes cardiovascular health, lowers blood pressure, helps control body weight, and offers protection against a variety of diseases. And just like a healthy diet, exercise can contribute to a healthy immune system, improves blood circulation allowing immune system cells to move through the body more freely and do their job more effectively.
4. Good Quality Sleep
Getting enough sleep has many health benefits. The lack of sleep puts your body into ‘fight or flight’ mode, releasing adrenaline and increased stress hormones into the body. Research shows that in general, adults need at least seven hours of sleep for optimal health and well-being. As we sleep our immune system works to heal and repair the body. A few tips for getting a good night’s sleep include avoiding caffeine in the evenings, turning off your screens (TV, laptop, phones, etc.) well before bedtime and sleeping in a cool, dark room.
5. Manage Your Stress
You may not often think about how stress affects your ability to fight off infection, but your state of mind can have a significant impact on your health. When you are experiencing more stress, your immunity is compromised, which puts you at a higher risk of getting sick. Managing stress may help you fight germs and infections. Stress management techniques include breath work, meditation, yoga, moderate exercise, walking etc. Having a support system of close friends and family can also help us feel connected and stay strong throughout stressful times.
Although there is no magical potion for immunity, you can take these five steps to boost your immune system which is very important as we enter the colder and darker mornings of winter. Don’t underestimate your lifestyle’s impact on your ability to help keep your immune system strong. Good nutrition, quality sleep, and managing stress can all have a significant impact on your health.
