NEW BUSINESS: Stephen Dermody pictured at the new family run business Hugga Mugga on College Street.

Going against the current tide of closures due to COVID one local family have decided to set up a new business with a unique menu which offers Belgian waffles on a stick - and it's proving quite the success.

Hugga Mugga on College St has set up as a take away only operation permanently where customers can get their purchases through a hatch.

It was a tentative opening in late December but Sarah Dermody, who also works as a Duty Manager at The Brehon Hotel, said it's going in the right direction.

On a trip to Belgium some time ago, Sarah experienced waffles which could be eaten as a take away option.

And when her father Stephen Dermody, who was the General Manager at the Killarney Court Hotel, said he was interested in setting up a business, they teamed up. With her father's business acumen, Sarah running social media and coming up with unique recipes, and Sarah's sister Clodagh giving a helping hand with kitting out the premises, it's a good old family affair!

"We opened at the end of December and it's going really well," Sarah told the Killarney Advertiser.

"We're based as a take away model one hundred percent. We did have the intention to sit inside but that's not an option at the moment and we won't in the future. We wanted to do Belgian waffles to add something different to the mix. We also do coffee, a rainforest blend, Chi lattes, tea and seven types of hot chocolate including a unicorn one."

And she added that while what they're offering is unique, and it's difficult opening during a pandemic, the people of Killarney are right behind them.

"The people of Killarney have been brilliant. Unique is what we were going for. We're not sure what the future holds but we plan to do ice cream in the summer."

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.
