One local proactive group is this week appealing to the public to 'mask up' when out and about in town and have even erected mask-aware signage on two approach roads as well as window posters in retail outlets.

Killarney Rotary Club launched their new 'Killarney Wears Masks' awareness initiative on Wednesday afternoon.

The importance of wearing masks has been highlighted recently by the Government and the HSE as a significant measure in reducing the spread of COVID-19 Coronavirus. It is compulsory now to wear face masks or coverings in all retail premises and indoor shopping malls.

Newly elected President of the Killarney branch, Anne Alcock says they're respectfully asking people to be conscious of putting the mask on when going about their business.

“While we are respectfully aware that there are situations where not everyone can 'mask-up' we think it is important that as many who can, do," Anne said.

"We welcome a lot of visitors to our town, and our club is united in wishing to protect visitors’ safety and well-being as well as that of our local community. Thus we are hoping to raise awareness of the appropriateness of wearing masks to help protect the spread of infection.”

Killarney Chamber of Tourism & Commerce President and long time Killarney Rotary Club member Paul Sherry praised Killarney Rotary Club for coming up with and implementing the campaign.

Any initiative that helps to prevent the spread of the virus ties in nicely with Kerry County Council's campaign to promote Killarney and the wider county as a 'Safe Destination' to visit, live and work, she added.

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.
