Organisers of 'Darkness into Light - Nathan's Walk' are expecting Killarney to “light up” as the popular charity walk makes a welcome return after the pandemic forced the cancellation of the event for the last two years.

The idea behind the local event is to spread awareness and to help prevent suicide and self-harm. It's also a chance to raise vital funds for the service provided free by Pieta House.

The Killarney walk was set up in 2011 by Marie O'Carroll following the tragic loss of her 14-year-old son Nathan.

'Darkness into Light - Nathan's Walk' was launched at JM Reidy’s on Tuesday and a large crowd took advantage of the early registration which opened at the launch.

Marie is confident that this year’s walk will attract large numbers going by the amount who signed up on Tuesday.

“People just want to get out after the pandemic,” she told the Killarney Advertiser.

“Killarney is going to light up.”

This year’s event will start at 4.15am Saturday morning from Killarney Racecourse. The 5k route will pass Ross Castle before entering the National Park and following the lake shore it will return to the racecourse via Ross Road.

Registration will re-open this evening (Friday) from 7pm to 9pm at Killarney Racecourse. Volunteers will also be on hand to finish registration between 1.30am and the walk’s start.

Meanwhile, Gary McCormick is recruiting volunteers to help marshal the walk. He needs people from 12 midnight to manage car parking in the racecourse as well as other roles along the route. He can be contacted on 087 685 6929.

Needless to say we all know what cellulite looks like, but there are many ways to reduce its appearance and help us look and feel better about it.

Yes, people often assume it’s down to a weight issue but it is associated with diet and exercise. It can affect all ages, male and female. There are many ways to help reduce and eliminate it.

Nothing can substitute for eating a healthy diet and getting enough exercise. Just as with other signs of ageing, cellulite is best managed first and foremost by focusing on maintaining a healthy weight long term. But certain topical treatments may help it become less noticeable and improve skin’s overall appearance, if used regularly. Dry body brushing is one technique to try by brushing upwards every day towards the heart for increased blood circulation.

Using anti-cellulite products can help if you are doing regular exercise and watching your diet, but if you feel you need a boost to get you headed in the right direction, there is a few different salon treatments that can be of benefit.

The Universal Contour Body Wrap is a great treatment which results in inch loss due to the detoxing effect of the sea clay or also the Electro Cellulite Massage rollers (ECM) by CACI Machine, which is a 12-session course over four weeks, this is recommended for desired results.

Pilates is always an amazing lifestyle choice. Having the toning tables for the past 30 years in Killarney, we are lucky to hear the amazing results from our clients past and present. Some have even been with us since we started! The male and female reviews have reported reduced cellulite with weekly appointments, improved posture, increased energy and mostly reduced cellulite.

Two Kerry-based car dealers are part of a national campaign to provide essential aid for Ukraine.

Donagh Hickey Motors in Rathmore and Adam’s of Tralee are the two local garages that have signed up for the project.

Under the scheme, the garages will be used as collection hubs for essential equipment that will be transported to the war torn country.

“We have a very large and loyal customer base and we are appealing through them to make donations,” Adam’s of Tralee General Manager, Marcus O’Shea, told the Killarney Advertiser.

“Any dealer could have signed up for this but we are one of only two in Kerry to do so.”

The garages, following advice from humanitarian agencies in Ukraine, have created a very specific list of what is urgently needed out there.

These include generators, solar battery chargers, batteries, power banks, flashlights, drones and tablets.

Medical equipment like First Aid kits (NATO standard) and other medical items are also sought.

People can assist by either dropping goods to the two garages or by making a donation via www.safeharbourforukraine.org.
