Kingdom Agri Trade Show not to be missed




The first ever Kingdom Agri Trade Show takes place in Killarney Racecourse from 2-5pm this Sunday and the message from Bank of Ireland is that they’re here to help and support farmers.

“This event is free and open to everyone, not just Bank of Ireland customers,” says Hugh Gleeson, Manager of Bank of Ireland, South Kerry. “We’ve organised it with the farming community in mind, however all members of the general public are welcome too.”

The racecourse will be divided into different zones on Sunday afternoon. The machinery zones will feature trade stands from different machinery companies showcasing the latest equipment, the agri-business zone will have trade stands from various businesses that provide services to the farming community. The vintage zone, meanwhile, will have displays of old vehicles and machinery from bygone times.

There’s also something for the little ones. You’ll find children’s games and activities, Disney characters, face painters and stalls offering ice cream and candy floss the kids’ zone. Be sure to check out the food zone and the music zone too, as well as the information and advice zone showcasing the services of companies such as agri-consultants. “We will also have a very interesting panel discussion taking place in the information and advice zone at 3pm,” says Hugh Gleeson. “Aisling O’Brien from Radio Kerry will chair a discussion, the theme- ‘the future of farming’. The other speakers will include Pat Murphy from Kerry Agri Business, Dan O’Connor from TF Casey, Michael Brosnan from IFAC, Eugene O’Doherty from Teagasc and Co. and Pat Byrnes from Bank of Ireland.

Celebrity guest Daithí ó Sé will also be in attendance as will some members of the Kerry senior football team. This event is the first of its kind to take place in Kerry but Hugh hopes for it will continue into the future.  “We see it as a way of engaging with the farming community here in Kerry and finding out just what it is that we can do to support them.”

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.
