Killorglin students runners-up at Generation €uro Awards



The Central Bank of Ireland recognised the achievements of young economics students from Killorglin Community College at the Generation €uro Students’ Award virtual final recently.

Students from Killorglin faced stiff competition from Sutton Park School, Dublin, and were crowned runners-up in the final as they took on the role of the ECB Governing Council by carrying out an analysis of the economy and setting an appropriate interest rate for the Euro area. The teams talked in detail about the challenges currently faced by the Euro zone, and were commended for their ability to analyse the rapidly changing economic environment against the backdrop of the COVID-19 crisis. Both teams received trophies to mark their achievement.

The Generation €uro Students’ Awards presentation represents the culmination of nearly a year’s work for the successful student teams. The Central Bank is delighted to deliver the final virtually and to recognise the achievements of the competing teams.

Deputy Governor Sharon Donnery highlighted the achievement of those who reached the final, saying, “through their participation in this competition, the students from Sutton Park School and Killorglin Community College demonstrated a strong understanding of the principles of economics and of monetary policy, and they showed rigour in their assessment of the monetary policy options available as they put themselves in the shoes of the ECB Governing Council”.

Speaking about the Killorglin team, which consisted of team members Ethan Victor, Luke Diggin and Ivan Loi led by their teacher Lisa Cahillane, she said “they showed excellent knowledge of the current economic conditions in a very uncertain world”.

Commenting on the importance of engagement with the next generation of economists, Deputy Governor Donnery said “the Central Bank is very committed to playing its part in encouraging the economists of the future. It’s very much in our interests to ensure there is a strong pipeline of young people interested in economics who may choose to forge careers in this area in the future. It is the case that the study of economics can open the door to so many careers.”

Detox Wrap will leave you feeling energised

It may be the last few weeks of the holidays but, it is no better time treat yourself to a body detox wrap.

This wrap is suitable for males and females.
This wrap will boost your energy levels and make you feel like yourself again. Having loads of BBQs and nights out or feeling bloated and sluggish, unmotivated.
This wrap is a great way to boost energy by increasing lymphatic drainage, which helps the body’s natural detox system to release bad toxins. By aiding the lymphatic system and increasing the negative, harmful toxins. Your body will immediately start to feel better, more motivated, and increased energy. Your skin will feel better and bring your glow back.

The process is having sea clay applied all over the body, followed by bandages wrapped in a specific way to lift and firm the skin and finally you are tucked up in a heated blanket….. to sweat out the negative toxins. following the treatment, you have a three-day detox, no tea, coffee, fried fatty foods, fizzy drinks, processed foods or even a shower to leave the active clay and get to work on the lymphatic system.

This is a seriously great treatment, that really works if you follow the process. As the heat from the blanket helps to open your pores on the body the sea clay can go into the deep layers of the skin, when you unwrap the clay is trapped in the skin and its ingredients get to work.

Bentonite has excellent drainage properties for full detox and skin clarification.

Magnesium sulphate stimulates peripheral skin circulation, exfoliating and anti-inflammatory.
Magnesium Chloride has valuable mineral salt and permits cellular balance, combats stress and fluid retention, and has anti-bacterial properties.

Zinc oxide, bacterium properties and anti-inflammatory.

Sodium Chloride detoxifies tissues and tightens the skin.

They work best the longer they are left on the skin and the longer you detox. I wouldn’t claim a 2-hour treatment can do amazing results without the homework. The clay isn’t dirty looking on the skin, it looks more like a cloud of chalky dust on the outer skin, the active properties have been absorbed into the skin.
The skin may feel a little different while the clay is working, but the results are worth it. It’s a great treatment after weight loss, pregnancy, liposuction or just re-energises you as a whole.

Puck Goat removed from platform in searing heat

Organisers of Puck Fair have taken King Puck down from his platform to protect the wild mountain goat from the heat.

Today mark’s day two of the three-day fair in Killorglin town. As part of the fair’s tradition a wild mountain goat presides over the town from his tall platform over the course of the three days.

Organisers employ a dedicated vet to look after the goat and a team of experienced goat handlers are also on duty for the duration of the festival.

There is also a temperature monitoring device on the platform.

As temperatures hit 29 degrees today (Thursday), the vet and handlers decided it was safer for the goat to be removed from the platform for the rest of the day.

“He is currently resting in the shade,” spokesperson Marcella O’Connor told the Killarney Advertiser. “The handlers were monitoring him in case it got too hot, the decision was made to take him down, and the vet says he is happy.”

A decision will be made tomorrow (Friday) on the goat’s return to the platform for the final day of the fair.
