WHEELIE GOOD IDEA: A screenshot Marcus Treacy cycling through his empty hotel which has gone viral online.

It was a 'wheelie' great idea in terms of publicity - as well as having some fun - as one local hotelier who decided to make use of his empty hotel has gone viral online.

Cyclist Marcus Treacy, the current County Time Trial League cycling champion, owns and runs the popular Killarney Park Hotel on East Avenue which is currently closed due to COVID-19 restrictions.

However, as Marcus visits his hotel at least once a day to make sure everything is in order, he decided to have some fun!

With help from his nephew Teddy, who is son of Ciara Treacy who runs the Ross Hotel across the street, while the hotel was empty he video-recorded himself doing his daily check while cycling one of his cross-country bikes through the premises.

Along to music of Bjork's 'It's oh so Quiet', he can be seen descending the hotel’s stairs, pulling wheelies in the lobby and racing through the dining room and restaurant - areas that would normally be thronged with guests - before exiting through the front door.

“It was all a bit of fun,” he told the Killarney Advertiser. “A hotel is a 24/7 business and you would never get the chance to do something like this. Like every business in these times, we are trying to keep our brand alive. The media is full of depressing stories these days so we decided to do something different.”

The video, which he posted on the hotel’s social media sites, has reached over 50,000 people in total so far.

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.
