Local beautician plans free treatments for frontline workers

Hairdressers and beauty therapists around Ireland – including one local business – are planning to join forces for a "massive day of thank you" to frontline healthcare workers.

The 'Frontline Give Back Day' will take place when the COVID-19 restrictions are lifted and will see salons offer a day of free treatments to frontline healthcare workers.

The day is the idea of Tullamore, Co Offaly, business-owner Olivia Murray who put a call-out on Instagram for other businesses to join the initiative. Businesses are encouraged to offer six treatments or six hours of personal care to frontline staff.

And one local beautician who answered the call is Jill O’Donoghue from Killarney Toning and Beauty Salon located in Fair Hill.

Jill says that although she’s currently closed to the public, she is more than happy to give something back when she reopens.

“I have signed up for the 'Frontline Give Back Day Campaign’ whereby I will be offering free treatments to our amazing frontline angels in the hopefully not too distant future!” Jill told the Killarney Advertiser this week.

“I will be opening my salon doors some Sunday to offer some much needed and deserved massage, beauty or body treatments absolutely free of charge. Our amazing frontline staff are working tirelessly to keep us and our loved ones safe during these challenging times. We will never truly be able to thank them enough for what they are doing for our families, for our communities and for our country, but together we can show them our appreciation through little acts of kindness like this. In times like these, the saying ‘alone we can do so little; together we can do so much’ really rings true.”

She said it’s hard to know when to open as they'll have to wait and see what happens on May 5 first.

"When we do reopen we will put the health of our clients first and have stringent safety measures in place. We can’t wait to meet all our clients again.”

Spa GAA club has signed up to participate in the Ireland Lights Up winter walking initiative.

The lights will be on every Wednesday night between 7pm and 8pm for the next few weeks at the club’s new walking track. This week marked the second week of night walking but the club also held a candle-light vigil in memory of Ashling Murphy, the Offaly school-teacher who was murdered while out for a walk two weeks ago.

“Participants can follow the walking track that offers a safe off-road path and this activity is open to everyone in the community. If anyone would be available to help with registration or stewarding any night, all help is greatly appreciated,” said club PRO Deirdre O’Sullivan-Darcy.

Any volunteers that can help any evening or any questions please contact Margaret Doyle on 0879181970.

Killarney Municipal District is to appoint the services of a tree specialist to exam the condition of trees in the wider district.

The move follows last December’s Storm Barra. during which several tress were toppled. 
One motorist had a lucky escape when a tree fell on their car during the storm. Another fallen tree blocked access to the Moll’s Gap road near Muckross.
Both Cllrs John O’Donoghue and Donal Grady raised the issue at a recent Killarney Municipal District meeting.
“In order to mitigate against such events, the Killarney MD Office are in the process of preparing tender documents to procure assessment of specific trees that are in the charge of Kerry County Council.” A council official told the meeting.
“This will allow the MD to make determinations on individual trees in its charge. Individual property owners are responsible for the welfare and maintenance of trees within and along the boundary of their property lines.”
