It’s been seven months of refurbishments and they didn’t close for a single day – but the new look Sean Taaffe salon at the Courtyard on Lewis Road will be relaunched today (Friday).

And not only have they doubled their size – going from 24 stations to 38, which includes five barber stations with red and chrome chairs specially imported- they’ve added some new features including a Nespresso coffee dock which will serve both clients and members of the public, as well as a retail area where customers can browse the new retail space or relax in the new waiting area.

For 30 years Sean Taaffe and his team have been looking after the locks of the people of Kerry and beyond. Over the years it has expanded and now employs over 60 people ranging from hair to beauty, make-up and nails.

“After seven months of refurbishment the Sean Taaffe flagship salon at the courtyard Lewis Road in Killarney is opening its doors,” Sean Taaffe told the Killarney Advertiser.

“We broke through and connected unit 10 existing salon to unit 11 next door. The new salon will include a Nespresso coffee dock which will serve both clients and members of the public, and a retail area to browse through with ranges including Morrocan oil, Joico, Alfa Parf, GHD, Colour Wow. The men’s zone St4men has had a complete makeover too with awesome new chrome chairs and a new waiting area.”

And Sean has not been resting on his laurels as he is also launching a professional tool range this week including precision hairdressing scissors and cutting combs.

“We are delighted to launch our new range,” Sean said.

“It all started with people continually asking when we were teaching seminars where they could get the tools we use, and we saw a niche in the market.”

The new equipment will be available from Sean Taaffe Education www.seantaaffe.com and also on their Facebook shop.

He has put a huge focus on ongoing education and training and this is what Taaffe attributes the success of the brand to.

“It’s easy for a company to get on top, but to stay on top is always going to be the toughest job as there is only one way to go. The team at Sean Taaffe understand their mission to provide bespoke hairdressing services at a consistently high standard, and they know that it is client satisfaction that is the key to the salon’s success.”

What do roses, wrens, King Puck, fairies and Santa Claus have in common? Well, all now feature in a new children’s book co-written by a mother and son.

The new illustrated poetry collection for children, ‘A Very Kerry Year’, by Killorglin mother and son, Jacinta and Conor Browne, has been published just in time for Christmas.

And all proceeds will be donated to Comfort for Chemo, an organisation whose mission it is to build and equip a chemotherapy unit for the people of Kerry.

The charity is close to the young author’s heart as Conor himself was undergoing cancer treatment while writing this book.

With original poetry by the mother and son, the book also has another separate family connection as the talented illustrators are local artists, father-daughter duo Con and Rochelle Lucey, with each page awash with colour and beautiful drawings.

“I know first-hand how important it is to have a comfortable environment while receiving chemotherapy,” Conor said.

‘A Very Kerry Year’ is currently available for €12 from The Crystal Cave and the Reeks District Tourist Office in Killorglin and will soon be available in many more outlets throughout the county.
