TEEING up for a unique charity golf event, Killarney Lions Club has joined forces with SouthWest Counselling Centre.
The Killarney Lions Club hosts the fundraiser every year at the Killarney Golf & Fishing Club, and this year’s event, in aid of SouthWest Counselling Centre, will take place on Wednesday, April 13.
“What makes this event stand out from others, is that although it’s organised by the Lions, it could not be held without its sponsors and benefactors,” said Killarney Lions Club President Con Stack.
“To get an 18-hole golf course for the day is difficult, getting one at Killarney Golf & Fishing Club is another matter entirely.”
And to make the day even more special, the refreshments (breakfast or lunch, depending on the time slot) are sponsored by the five-star Aghadoe Heights Hotel, with Jason Higgins, operations manager at the Aghadoe Heights personally, overseeing the day’s proceedings. The fourball event also offers some superb prizes, sponsored by Tricel (Killarney).
“The Lions Club is 100% voluntary, with no salary nor expense paid to members. Outside of the events running costs, what we collect in the Lions Club goes locally to charities and organisations that need our help,” said Con.
"This year we are supporting the Southwest Counselling Centre in Lewis Road, Killarney. Southwest Counselling (telephone 064-663 6416), which has been providing counselling in Kerry since 1994.”
There are still some places left to take part so if you would like to enter a team, contact John O’Callaghan on
086-3844834.

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.
