Rosacea is a skin condition that affects both men and women and it's not to be ignored as it doesn't go away and get can get so much worse if left untreated.

This common chronic skin condition is usually found on the face and eyes. It can look like pimples, with redness and broken capillaries with people in middle age, from 30 to 60 years with fair skin, blue eyes, suffering most. The most significant environment trigger is the sun as skin is very sensitive to exposure. Always wear SPF 50 on the face and neck. It's even better to wear large sun glasses and a hat to shade the face altogether. Altered microbiome of the skin and gut health can really cause flare ups. Changes in the seasons and diet seem to affect people also.

Unfortunately there is no cure for rosacea, but you have to learn to manage it and reduce flare ups by recognising the signs and symptoms. In men especially, rosacea can cause thickening of the skin on the nose, making it appear bulbous. This can be reduced with correct treatment and home care. Fragile capillaries require regulating, soothing and protecting to get good results. Products can soothe, replenish and protect the skin.

Sothys has created the Clearness and Comfort line to help strengthen the circulatory system of fragile skin, reduce redness and increase protection against aggression with rosacea skin. Targeting skin with permanent redness and visible capillaries, the advanced formula features breakthrough polyphenol technology known for the ability to protect and soothe with powerful antioxidants benefits. Sothys selected polyphenols of hazel leaf and mint to alleviate symptoms associated with rosacea.

A soothing facial, it's a great way to get started on the road to repair.

Works are under way to install a high-speed fibre broadband network in the remote Black Valley area of Kerry.

The Black Valley was one of the last areas of Ireland to be electrified but broadband in the region is expected to be live in the second half of the year with residents already able to pre-order their connection. 
“It is well known that Black Valley was one of the last locations to get electricity due to its remoteness and challenging terrain, so we are extremely pleased to be commencing the rollout of our high-speed fibre network now with a view to connections being available later this year,” said National Broadband Ireland Deployment CEO, TJ Malone.
  
“We are determined to ensure the rollout is as fast as possible and connection is made easy for Black Valley residents, and we have a plan in place to work around the location’s all-important tourist season.

“Black Valley is a symbol of NBI’s mission that no area will be left behind no matter how rural or remote and we are delighted that this beautiful location moves one step closer to high-speed fibre today, with all the opportunities that will unlock for the local community.”

They never duck when faced with a big challenge on the field so it was safe to assume that GAA players of the year David Clifford and Louise Ní Mhuircheartaigh weren’t going to shy away from the latest task on their home patch.

The two top footballers in the country teamed up to launch a charity duck race which will form part of this year’s St Patrick’s Festival in Killarney, where they both live.

When the working day was done, busy secondary school teachers David and Louise had some great quack and they got caught up in the spirit of the occasion along the scenic River Deenagh in Killarney National Park.

The reigning Player of the Year and Ladies Player of the Year award winner demonstrated their competitive streak when they expressed confidence that their own ducks will win The Deenagh Duck Dash on the same river at noon on Monday, March 18.

But, luckily, festival chairman Jason Clifford was there to keep the peace and he even threatened to cry fowl and brandish a card at the star players – with duck yellow deemed the most appropriate colour.

Considered by many to be the greatest players of all time in their respective codes, between them, Fossa hotshot David and Corca Dhuibhne star Louise have an incredible nine All-Star awards.

But they might be tempted to swap one if their duck wins the fun-filled race on the day after St Patrick’s Day.

All proceeds from the event will go to St Francis Special School in Beaufort, Killarney which provides specialist education for young people with learning disabilities.
Festival chairman Jason remarked: “This isn’t just a race – it’s great fun for the whole family.
“Picture the scene with a flotilla of vibrant rubber ducks racing down a winding river, their owners cheering them on and all in the name of a fantastic cause”.
Super prizes await the winners, the cost of a rubber duck to participate in the race is just €5 and they can be bought online at https://stpatricksfestivalkillarney.ie/.
