Moriarty’s of Killorglin launch new website




By Michelle Crean

There's €1,000 store credit to furnish a room of your choice up for grabs - and it's all part of the launch of a new website today (Friday).

In response to the demand for a better online presence during the pandemic Moriarty's of Killorglin decided to get to work and build their very first website.

And after a false start and a lot of research, web design company Avalanche was chosen and the result can be found on

"Over the last two years living with COVID has been an extreme challenge for customers and business owners alike," Claire Caulfield, Sales and Administration Manager, told the Killarney Advertiser.

"It really was a story like none other, a story of uncertainty, most businesses had to get creative and adapt their way of doing business over this period in order to survive and keep going. It [a website] was something that we hadn’t overly considered as people could always visit us, we quickly realised that we had to adapt to these strange times and from there our website journey began."

And Claire added that they couldn’t recommend Avalanche enough.

"Aidan made the process so simple and less daunting than we first thought. Aidan and his team couldn’t have been more helpful, any idea we had they put on the site that day. We have never been so grateful to all our customers over the last two years for the support they have shown us, without this the chances are like a lot of businesses over COVID, we would have had to close our doors. We really do now understand the meaning of 'Shop Local'."

And in light of launching the new site they would like to give someone very special a little gift.

"COVID is hopefully finally coming to an end but with this has left its mark on many people’s lives, leaving behind heartache, job losses and the rising cost of living. We would like to give €1,000 store credit to furnish a room of their choice. All you have to do is go to our website, click on the dedicated link and nominate someone close to you that truly deserves it and leave us a little message as to why you have chosen this person; it can be anyone from a child, parent, grandparent or healthcare worker - you decide!

"Again, we would like to thank all our customers from far and wide and Aidan and his team at Avalanche because without these people none of this would be possible. Strength and growth come only through effort and support."

How to have the best skincare routine at home

Home care is essential for glowing, youthful skin. It’s like brushing your teeth, it must be done twice a day.

Step one: Cleanse to remove sweat, oil, dirt and other pollutants that your skin naturally collects throughout the day and night. It’s the first step in your skincare routine and shouldn’t be rushed.

How to do it; Cleanse your skin in the morning and in the evening to keep your pores clear and your face fresh. Your cleanser may vary based on skin type, but with all cleansers, the general consensus is to apply them using an upward, circular motion so as to prevent wrinkles from forming. Make sure your hands are clean in order to prevent excess dirt from entering your pores.

Step two: There is a lot of confusion around toner, and when you’re first establishing a daily skincare routine, it may even seem unnecessary. But most experts agree that toning is an important addition to your skin care routine with beneficial effects for your skin. After you cleanse your skin of impurities, toner removes any residue left behind by the cleanser as well as any make-up or oils your cleanser might have missed. The added cleansing effects help prepare your skin to absorb moisturiser and minimise the appearance of pores. Some toners may have PH balancing and antiseptic effects as well. Apply toner right after you have cleansed your skin while it is still damp. The best way to apply it is with a cotton pad or cotton ball, simply soaking cotton pad with toner and wiping upward and out, starting at your neck.

Step 3: Exfoliate. Our skin is constantly shedding millions of skin cells every day, but sometimes those cells can build up on the surface of our skin and need some extra help to be removed. Exfoliating removes these dead skin cells that have accumulated in our pores. If you struggle with blackheads, acne or breakouts, you’re not going to want to miss this step.

It’s best to exfoliate after toning and before moisturising. You should exfoliate one to three times a week, but this depends on your skin type and how it reacts to exfoliation. Experiment and find what works best for you. There are chemical exfoliators and granule exfoliators such as your traditional sugar or salt scrub. Both can be effective tools for removing dead skin cells, but chemical exfoliating ingredients like AHA and BHA are often more effective in getting deep into your pores and removing buildup.

Properly cleansed skin will allow your next steps e.g. serums and moisturisers get to the right layers of the skin where they will be most effective.

The Kerry Bikers are hosting their annual Christmas Bike Run on December 18.

The event will raise funds for St Francis’ Special School at St Mary of the Angels in Beaufort and Eagle Lodge in Tralee.

Now in its sixth year, the run, which is organised by an amalgamation of several Kerry motorcycle clubs under the banner of Kerry Bikers, will visit Killarney.

The run gets underway at 10.30am from Tralee. The first stop off is in Sheahan’s Centra on the Muckross Road where the Tralee group will be joined by local motorcyclists before setting off on a yet to be decided route.

“We will announce the route in Killarney. Last year we went to Killorglin, Farranfore and Castleisland. This year Abbeyfeale and Listowel may be in reach and if so we will make donations to Nano Nagle Special School too,” organiser Dave Foley said.

Over one hundred motorcycles are expected to take part in the run. Last year the full convoy measured 1.6km from start to finish.

“We hope to exceed that this year,” added Foley
