Killarney people in favour of retaining two-metre social distancing rules.

By Sean Moriarty

The majority of Killarney people are not in favour of reducing the current two-metre social distancing rule to one-metre a Killarney Advertiser poll has revealed.

Nearly a 1,000 readers of the town’s longest serving news weekly took part in a social media poll this week. Of the 911 people that voted 574 of them said keep the current regulation as it stands.

A further 337 were opposed to idea and want the distancing to be reduced to one metre.

Several people commented on the Facebook poll with the vast majority of commenters supporting the two-metre rule.

“Stick with the guidance of Dr. Holohan. If he says two metres, then follow his rules! Simple.! He’s the expert in this-we are not,” posted Maeve Foley.

Tralee clothes shop owner Danny Leane said: “Two meters will be staying in my boutique on Monday regardless of what any politician will say.”

While Neil Kelly added: “Even if the distance is reduced to one metre in the near future, keeping a two metre distance (especially in busy areas) would remain a safer approach.”

Others were concerned about the way some people were disregarding the rules.
“People climb on top of you to get to items on shelves,” said Joan Keating.

“Stick with the two metres until the advice changes from the medical experts who have got us this far,” said Maureen Collier while Kathleen Fitzgerald added: “If it's working why change it.”

With the current 5km travel restriction set to lift on Monday, many Killarney people are looking forward to visiting family and friends.

It may sound too good to be true but fat dissolving injections are as effective as the name suggests.

They are administered by our in-house Dr. Micheal Flynn who has been attending our salon for the past 10 years. It is the double chin and neck area that is treated and is suitable for both men and women. If you haven’t heard of fat dissolving, it is a very popular and relatively new treatment that is used to target stubborn pockets of fat on the jaw line and chin area. The injection dissolves and eliminates fat cells in a safe and effective way, making it perfect for dealing with stubborn fat that simply won’t budge with exercise.

The main ingredient is a fat dissolving substance sodium deoxycholate, which is found naturally in the body. This is injected into the treatment area which over time will destroy the fat cells. These are then removed from the body by its own lymphatic system, a complex network that rids the body of unwanted toxins and waste.

It is important to understand that fat dissolving injections are not a weight loss treatment. The injections should only be used on people who are a healthy size or carrying a little extra weight. It’s most effective on the pockets of fat stored under the jawline, known as the double chin, a migration of fat cells from the cheeks to the jaw line.

The injections work at a slow pace. It can take serval weeks for full results, but once it’s gone, it’s gone. The results are permanent, once you don’t gain a massive amount of weight.

The next clinic is Monday August 22. To book an appointment or more information, call Jill on 064 6632966.

Six members of the Killarney Valley Classic and Vintage Club will set out from County Meath on Wednesday on vintage tractors.

They are participating in the annual Eastern Vintage Club’s Ring of Kerry Tractor Run which is raising funds for the Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association.

Over 50 vintage tractors, including the six Killarney examples, will leave Nobber in County Meath at lunchtime on Wednesday.

After an overnight stop in the midlands on Wednesday night and Newcastle West on Thursday night, the tractors are expected in Killarney town centre just after lunchtime on Friday.

The ‘spectacular show’, now a regular feature of the Killarney summer, will bring the town to a standstill for around one hour.

On Saturday morning the group will depart Tony Wharton’s farm in Fossa before a nine-hour drive around the Ring of Kerry.

The run will finish with a spectacular drive through the Gap of Dunloe.

“We hope to pass through town around 3.30pm on Friday,” said local organiser, Tom Wharton, who is one of the six Killarney-based drivers who will undertake the 400km journey from County Meath to Killarney. “It is always a spectacular show.”

On arrival in Killarney, tractors will be joined by a group of classic cars that will depart Nobber at 9am that morning.
