NEW BOOK: Keel GAA Club members are preparing a new book seeking GAA stories. Pictured from l-r were: William Evans, Ailís Murphy and Brendan Griffin.

 

Work is underway on an exciting new book telling the story of Keel GAA Club from the perspectives of the people who make up the club.

The aim of 'Keel GAA Club, Stories from Our People' is to capture what the club means to the many people who have been involved in any way over the years, both on and off the pitch.

It is hoped that the book will be brought to publication later this year, including contributions from as many people as possible with connections to Keel GAA Club.

The initiative is being spearheaded by three of the club’s members, William Evans, Ailís Murphy and Brendan Griffin.

William Evans says that they are looking for a broad range of contributors.

“Players and members past and present, men and women, volunteers at every level, supporters, sponsors, Scór participants, referees, umpires, sandwich makers, grass cutters, ticket sellers, our global diaspora, new residents of Keel all are welcome and encouraged to contribute," he said. "We really hope that people will get involved and we want this to be a book for everyone.”

Ailís Murphy says that contributing couldn’t be simpler:

​​​​​​​“We are providing a list of questions and asking people to answer any or all and return responses by email to keelstories@gmail.com or by private message to our Facebook page by Sunday, July 19 with as much detail as people would like to give. As an additional option, we are asking people to look through their photo collections and select any images, old or new, that they would like considered for inclusion in the book, preferably including a photo of themselves. Where possible, we are also asking people to include details of the image, such as names, date, location and the name of the photographer.”

Brendan Griffin TD said that this book is a celebration of the people of the club as well as being a fun way to record some of the club’s history.

"All proceeds from the book will go towards the future development of Keel GAA Club," he said. “We would greatly value and appreciate as many responses as possible from Keel people everywhere and we look forward to producing 'Stories From Our People' later this year.”

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.
