If you're feeling unmotivated and sluggish and don't know where to start to get your fitness back on track, then toning tables may be the ideal solution to get a stretch back into your body.

If you're suffering from high blood pressure or high cholesterol, then look no further. Our Pilates based toning tables are suitable for both male and female of all ages and help to reduce these two conditions.

If you are having difficulty touching your toes, or tying your shoelaces, then you have to start somewhere and there's no point in putting it off. Rest assured, the toning tables will help loosen your muscles and help stretch you out safely and effectively. It's worth trying them out as they are like any style of exercise, as well as suitable to each individual's needs. We have many different types of clients including rehabilitation from hip operations or knee replacements. One client came in on a crutch and went out without it. She reported that she felt so good leaving that she forgot all about it. Also she told me her doctors said she was having an excellent and very quick recovery and added that it was down to doing the toning tables regularly three times a week.

The tables are fantastic at working on the pelvic floor muscle also. You must still do the work - but the tables will guide you in the right direction. Any bladder issues or pelvic floor muscle issue don't just go away so it's important to work on them or you will be heading for surgery. It's so important to heal the muscles after weight loss or pregnancy also, and can be done even if your child is 10-years-old for example. Basically, at any age it's never too late and it will change the quality of your life dramatically.

By Michelle CreanSpicy dishes and sweet treats were part of the experience in Killarney Community College as students took time out on Monday to celebrate a variety of different cultures.

The Modern Foreign Languages Department organised many events throughout the week but activity that took centre stage place was MasterChef for International Culture Day.

60 students from different countries took part by cooking dishes from their native countries. The judges had their work cut out for them but they finally agreed on a deserving winner.

First place went to Greece with a classic but simple Greek salad which was unbelievably well received by all. In second place was the Polish representatives who made mouth-watering pierogi dumplings while students from Germany produced a sweet cake from their own specific region and took third place.

First Year students got the opportunity to sample the food and learn about the dishes and cultures.

Stickers were worn on students’ jumpers from European Day of Languages and allowed students to speak with other students from their country and make new friends.

“It’s important to recognise and celebrate the ever-growing variety of different cultures within our society and our school setting,” Principal Stella Loughnane said.

“These opportunities provide a great scope for our students to learn and have a better understanding of these cultures while creating a greater respect for everyone’s backgrounds. I also got to taste a few of the dishes and even managed to snag a couple of recipes, they were that good.”

BREWING UP

Meanwhile it was a feel-good morning last Thursday at the school as students and staff brewed up for the Kerry Hospice Foundation.

They enjoyed many delicious treats kindly donated by staff all for an amazing cause. The Bewley’s Big Coffee Morning in aid of Kerry Hospice raised a whopping €650, this will no doubt be put to great use in supporting people in difficult times. This charity has an extra special meaning for Killarney Community College as they have had members of staff, who in challenging times, were supported by this outstanding service.

Ms Loughnane commended the efforts of staff involved adding that it was such a worthwhile cause.

“The college was delighted to host this event to raise funds for Kerry Hospice who provide so much support to our community at times of need, it is so important to give a little back.”

Four years on from his last appearance at the National Ploughing Championships, Shane Godley continues to move up the ranks in his age group.

The Killarney Ploughing Association member last represented Kerry in the Under 21s in 2018 when he placed sixth in the two-furrow conventional class in the national competition.

Last week at the 2022 National Ploughing Championships at Rathinaska, County Laois he placed fourth in the under 28 age group for the same category.

“Weather conditions for both the ploughing days was very good but the ground was very hard,” he said.

Club mate Mike Brosnan from Gortalea, finished 20th in the ‘Vintage Mounted’ class. They were the only two members of Killarney Ploughing Association to compete at the event.
