Knocknagree Ladies launch virtual fundraiser

RUN RUN RUN: Club member Kate Fleming and her brother David supporting Knocknagree Ladies Football Club.

A local jeweller is calling on the people of Killarney to get behind her football team and join a virtual walk.

Sarah Dineen runs Caragh Jewellers on Plunkett St. She is also the treasurer of Knocknagree Ladies Football Club.

The north-Cork club reached the junior semi-finals of the Cork County Championship this season but their run of success also came at a cost. The girls face additional physiotherapy and training bills. They also need to pay for post-match meals and other expenses related to running a successful club.

But like every other club, COVID-19 has hit them hard and it has not been possible to run fundraisers during the year.

Instead they are inviting people to walk, jog or cycle, one, two, five or 10 kilometres during the month of October in a virtual challenge.

“We want to continue to be able to promote ladies sports,” Sarah told the Killarney Advertiser. “It was expensive maintaining the club this year and we are unable to run our usual fundraisers.”

Participants can send a photo of the walk/run event, time recorded or the scenery, to Club PRO Maura O’Mahony on WhatsApp to 085 1450533.

“Everyone who sends in any photo will be included into a draw for some spot prizes. Please observe Social Distancing if heading out with friends,” said Maura. “To donate please click the link to a GoFundMe page pinned to the top of our club’s Facebook page and Twitter account on completion of your walk, run or cycle. All funds raised will go directly to the running of the club.”

For further queries contact Club Chairperson Catherine Ring on (083) 349 8778 or Club Secretary Maria Doyle on (087) 338 1829.

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.
