Killarney and District Motor Club has confirmed that its November 27 Rentokil Initial Killarney Historic Rally will go ahead.

It will mark the first time since 2019 that Ireland’s only rally which is dedicated to historic rally machinery will be allowed go ahead after last year’s event was lost to the pandemic.

Martin Farrell, who acted as clerk of the course for the 2018 rally, is back at the helm and will lead a team of volunteers from the Killarney-based club.

“2018 and 2019 were the most successful years for the rally with a high-quality full entry list including 35 reserve cars meaning the Rentokil Initial Killarney Historic Rally was the best one-day event in the country,” he said. “It has been a difficult and challenging two years for everybody and the club is delighted to welcome back Rentokil Initial as title sponsors, with huge thanks to Mr Motorsport in Kerry Michael O'Mahoney."

Details of the route have not been revealed at this point.

Rally HQ will once again be in The Gleneagle Hotel and the hotel will be offering special accommodation bundles for the event.

The rally will be a counting round of the 2022 Irish Tarmac Rally Championship.

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!

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.”
