Liebherr Container Cranes 2-6, Mayo Teachers 1-8

LIEBHERR are through to their third All-Ireland Senior Football Final in a row after an epic battle with the Mayo Teachers on Saturday in Fitzgerald Stadium. Both sides took a while to settle and Liebherr got the first score of the game with a well-taken point by Donal Murphy on the ninth minute and when Gavin Kelly Goaled shortly after Liebherr looked to be well in control, both teams traded points just before the break with Liebherr’s score coming from the boot of Eoin Lawlor to leave Liebherr ahead at halftime 1-2 to 0-1.

The Mayo Teachers came out in the second half and goaled within two minutes of the re-start, they added points in the 35th, 36th and 38th minutes to take the lead for the first time in the game. Liebherr’s defence were finding it hard to prevent the wave of attacks from the Mayo Teachers and Liebherr’s Keeper Colin Myers had to make a point-blank save to keep out a certain goal, but after two pointed frees from Daniel O'Shea and Eoin Lawlor in the 43rd and 44th minutes, the sides were level again.

A point by substitute Michael McCarthy put Liebherr back in front again but The Mayo Teachers reeled off the next three points to leave the teachers ahead going into the 50th minute. Liebherr battled hard and after some brilliant defending, Liebherr worked the ball down field and Daniel O'Shea was left isolated to finish the ball to the next.

Liebherr had a free pointed by Daniel O'Shea in the 56th minute to leave them two points ahead. The Mayo Teachers weren’t giving up though and after a pointed free, there was only a point between the sides heading into injury time. Liebherr held out to win by a point though and set up a home All-Ireland Final against Intel on February 25 in Killarney.

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.
