Killarney Local Tara O'Shea is the proud owner of a new, nurse-led, skin clinic opening in Killarney.

She is a Clinical Nurse Manager in Dermatology with a two-year Masters in Nurse Education from the University of Galway and over five years' experience as a Dermatology nurse. Having worked at the world-renowned St John's Institute of Dermatology in London first, she continued to expand on her cosmetic dermatology knowledge and education at Harley Street Institute.

As Tara said: “The skin is the largest organ of the body so why wouldn’t we look after it?”

As she launches her new business this week her goal is to empower people to make informed decisions about their daily skincare and target treatments.
“A professional skin consultation can help with short-term dermatological issues and concerns, as well as invest in the long-term optimization of your skin's health,” she added.

Tara understands that when people think skincare, they think cost. She aims to provide advice regarding skin products that are most suitable and within the clients price range. Some of the target treatments available at the clinic include:

Microneedling: A natural way of boosting collagen and elastin.
Nanoneedling: Allows for serums to penetrate deeper into the skin for a glowing appearance.
Chemical peels: Creates chemical trauma to the skin with specific target treatments.
Platelet Rich Plasma Facial (PRP): Stimulates collagen and connective tissue regeneration.

PRP for Hair growth: Injected at a deeper level to assist in hair growth for people with male pattern baldness, female pattern hair loss, or alopecia areata.
The skin concerns Tara aims to improve include acne, acne scarring, rosacea, pigmentation/sun damage, sensitivity/uneven skin tone, fine lines and wrinkles, male pattern baldness or female pattern hair loss, and overall glow up for an occasion or event.
Tara can be contacted on 087 6647097 or you can follow her on Instagram @dermnursetara.

Next Friday (June 21), members of the public are invited to attend the Mass taking place at 6.30pm.

Now in its 30th year, the Mass was originally an idea by Geoffrey O’Donoghue who sadly died four years after it began.

“There was an Augustinian Monastery on Innisfallen Island and the people, including priests and monks and they say Brian Boro, went out there to study. The lake, Lough Lein is called ‘The Lake of Learning’,” said his wife Mary who carries on the tradition in his memory.

“My husband Geoffrey was a descendent of the O’Donoghues and he wanted to have Mass on the island. The O’Donoghues built Ross Castle and owned the lands and the lake surrounding it which was later donated by John McShane to the people of Killarney. He [Geoffrey] asked one of the friars and one day he got a call from the OPW that there would be a plaque unveiled to John McShane and they asked if the Mass could coincide with it. It was attended by Sr Pauline, John McShane’s daughter.”

She added that all the public are welcome to attend. Boats, which will have a nominal fee to cover their costs, will be carrying passengers out from 4pm onwards.

A photograph of one of Killarney’s hidden beauty spots was deemed the winner of Killarney Camera Club’s most recent competition.

Th standard was high throughout all categories but in the Novice category, Iryna Halaieva’s photograph of O’Sullivan’s Cascade was deemed the winner.

“A waterfall is my favourite waterbody and long exposure is my favourite photographic technique,” she said. “I do my best to have as many waterfalls as possible in my photo collection. I heard a lot about O’Sullivan’s Cascade and wanted to visit that hidden gem of Kerry. So, shortly before our club competition I went with a friend to Tomies Wood to photograph it. It was a dream come true for me.”
