Male waxing is becoming ever more popular

We can do all areas of the face and body.

The most popular areas are the back, chest and brows. Although lately, we have been doing a lot of nose and ear waxing. The hair stays away for much longer than shaving and there is no stubble left behind.

It is a lot less painful than you imagine. With the sunny days head, plenty of beach time. It's never too late to try out waxing, doesn't matter what age you are, we have seen a wide range of men of all ages over the past few months.

A few tips to prepare the skin for waxing sessions.

Be sure to exfoliate before waxing, using a scrub once a week on the area to be waxed should help. Scrub a day or two before your appointment, not the same day. What you are doing with this is removing the dead cells that build up on the surface. That way wax removes just the hair, not a layer of dead cells.

Let your hair grow (if you have been shaving). For best results we recommend 3-4 weeks since your last hair removal. If your hair is too short that wax can't remove it all.

Take time to relax, there is one thing that helps everything and that is a take long hot soak in the bath a couple of hours before your waxing session. The water will also soften the hair, which makes it easier to remove. The warmer the water can soften your skin too. The more relaxed you are the easier it is to wax. When you are tense your muscles are tense and that can hold in the hair.

After waxing, stick to the 48-hr rule, especially for your first treatment.

You will need to keep the area, clean and dry to avoid anything that could irritate your delicate skin. e.g. sunlight, exfoliating, tight clothes, hot baths, swimming, hot tubs and perfumed body lotions.

If the skin feels sensitive or dry, you can apply aloevera-based lotion.

Tributes have been paid to Marie Murphy of Aughacureen, who died in tragic circumstances on November 30.

Marie was a member of the well known Murphy business family in Killarney – her brother runs KWD Recycling and she was heavily involved in the business.

She was best known for involvement in the local GAA both as a county star and a member of Fossa GAA Club.

She was a third generation Kerry footballer, her grandfather Con and father John all played football for Kerry.

She was extremely proud of her niece Abbie, her brother Seán’s daughter, when she became the fourth generation Murphy to play for Kerry.

Marie played for Kerry in 1976 and re-joined Fossa GAA Club in 2010 when the ladies’ side of the club was re-formed.

She acted as a mentor for current group of ladies.

Back in 2019 when Fossa GAA Club published a book to mark its 50th anniversary she was one of the leading lights on that committee.

This year, when the club held its Night of Legends to raise funds for a new dressing room for the ladies’ club, Marie was one of the guests of honour at the INEC event and was interviewed on the stage in front of a capacity audience.

Only a few weeks ago she was one of the many club members who helped organise the Fossa Golf Classic and acted as official photographer for that event.

“The club is numb with sadness,” said Fossa GAA chairman Dermot Clifford. “She was a loyal member and very proud of the club. Our thoughts are with her family. A lovely, unassuming lady who will be sorely missed.”

Marie will be sadly missed by her brothers Con, Seamus and Seán, sisters-in-law Breda, Gennie and Anna, her nieces Shauna, Amy, Kate and Abigail, nephews John, Jack, Luke, aunties Mairead and Maura, cousins, relatives, neighbours and a large circle of friends.

She was laid to rest at Old Aghadoe Cemetery on Monday following Requiem Mass at The Prince of Peace Church, Fossa.

Kerry Airport is in line for nearly €1.5m in funding under the Regional Airports Programme 2021-2025.

All five regional airports in the country will share a total of €21,100,051 released under the scheme.

Kerry Airport will get €1,434,355 to put towards vital safety operations like air traffic control, fire services and security.

The CEO of Kerry Airport, John Mulhern, welcomed the funding.

“We are grateful to Minister Naughton, the Department of Transport and Kerry’s two Government TDs, Minister Norma Foley and Deputy Brendan Griffin for their continued support,” he said.

“The funding will help to ensure that Kerry Airport remains compliant with regulatory requirements in key areas, such as air traffic control, fire services and security.”

Funding this year for airports will total over €37 million building on the €161 million provided in unprecedented aviation supports during 2021.

“I welcome this funding which will deliver further vital financial supports to Kerry Airport with a particular focus on safety, security operations and air traffic control,” Minister Foley said.

“This funding reinforces the importance and value that Government places on the vital role of our regional airports and how connectivity directly supports tourism and enterprise in Kerry.”
