WHEN you are battling cancer, a beauty or massage treatment can be an important factor in your general wellbeing. According to experts, such therapies can be extremely helpful in terms of your emotional and psychological wellbeing but can be last on the list of priorities.

Killarney native Caitriona Heffernan has joined forces with seven beauty specialists in the area who have generously donated complimentary vouchers for people going through or who have recently finished cancer treatment. “So far men and women who have been in touch have expressed how important these treatments will be to their wellbeing, how it helps with the ongoing emotional and psychological aspects of coping with cancer and how it can be difficult to afford such a treat due to the costs of illness,” said Caitriona.
“These beauty professionals are looking forward to welcoming and supporting you at this time.”

Sixteen vouchers are still available as part of the Beauty and the "Beast" campaign in conjunction with Kerry Hospice Foundation, for manicures, pedicures, eyebrow and eyelash tints from the following salons: The Spa at Muckross, Muckross Park Hotel; The Innisfallen Health & Beauty Rooms, The Malton Hotel;
The Spa at the Plaza Hotel; Desire Beauty & Nail Salon, West End House, New Street; Linda's Beauty & Holistic Clinique, Clarragh House, Woodlawn Road; Lady Jane Body & Beauty, Upper Park Road; and Killarney Toning & Beauty Studio, Fair Hill Car Park.

To avail of the treatments free of charge, contact Caitriona on caitrionachelsea@gmail.com or her sister Siobhan on 087-9819075.

The street collection in aid of Kerry Hospice Foundation held in Killarney last Sunday week along with a number of additional donations has so far raised an impressive €1,700.

It was organised by Caitriona who thanked family and friends who took to the streets on a wet and windy day to collect in memory of her brother Brendan. “I am grateful to the people of Killarney for their generous donations towards the construction of the 16-bedroom inpatient unit at Kerry University Hospital,” said Caitriona.

The coveted KY-1 plate has been allocated to Adams of Tralee for the second year in a row.

The county’s Hyundai dealership secured the coveted plate as a result of the Hyundai Tucson topping the individual model sales charts for 2021.

Available in diesel, petrol and pug-in hybrid, the Tucson offers something for every motorists.

With the switch to full electric not far away, Adams of Tralee’s general manager Marcus O’Shea believes that hybrid offers the perfect transition from fossil fuelled-cars to electric.

“It is a steeping-stone towards full electric,” he told the Killarney Advertiser. “It reduces the range anxiety for those not ready for full electric and it gets people used to new ways – plugging in the car at night at home will become normal and hybrid is the first step.”

The Tucson range has a model to suit all tastes and budgets. As well as being available in petrol, diesel or hybrid, each power variant is also available as in entry-level, mid or high specification formats.

Nicole Coffey of Nicole’s Hair Salon on St Anne’s was inspired to run a fundraiser for a women’s refuge after hearing distressing stories from some of her clients.

On Saturday last she offered a wash and blow-dry to clients and rather than charging them for the her services her customers made a donation to Adapt Women’s Refuge in Tralee.

Nicole was inspired to run the charity day because a lot of her regular clients opened up to her while they were getting their hair done.

The timing of her charity day was poignant as it came just days after Ashling Murphy was murdered while out for a run in her own town of Tullamore.

“People open up while I do their hair, many of them would not know that there is a refuge in Kerry,” she told the Killarney Advertiser. “I have experience with clients who are struggling. I had this idea to create more awareness for Adapt.”

She raised €2,000 for Adapt and the cheque was handed over to the Tralee-based charity on Thursday night this week.

Such was the success of her charity day Nicole worked from 7am to 7pm and as well as cash donations customers also donated vouchers and care packs to the charity.
