New Unislim classes for Killarney

Published

Five years ago, Deirdre Hayes McCann opened her first Unislim class in Killorglin after losing two stone. Now, as she prepares to open her new class in Killarney, she shares her top tips for slimming success.

“I can safely say that joining Unislim was the best decision I have ever made. Starting off as a member, I lost two stone and I am so thrilled to be celebrating my fifth year at my target weight this year. I am living proof that this plan works for life.

“My top tip is to plan your meals in advance and cook in batches. Before joining Unislim, I was always “too busy” to cook from scratch, but once my weight loss became a priority I found the time. I always set aside a few hours for myself on a Sunday to batch cook for the week ahead. My family love chicken curry, lasagne, bolognese, casserole and soup, so by cooking in advance I take the stress out of my busy week ahead.

“With Unislim you can enjoy all of your favourite foods and still lose weight. There are over 500 free foods to choose from and you will never be hungry. No counting calories or weighing out portions and you can even enjoy your favourite treats like chocolate and wine. Since losing weight, I have more confidence than ever and I love knowing that my story can inspire others to reach their weight loss goals. I love my classes, I love my members, and I love my job.”

Deirdre’s brand new Unislim class opens in the Killarney Heights Hotel on Thursday, June 21 from 5.30pm–7pm to complement her morning class in the same venue from 7.30am–10.30am. For more details on Deirdre’s Killorglin and Caherciveen classes, or for the full listing of all Unislim classes, visit Unislim.com. Deirdre will be running a free to join offer from June 21-29 (just pay the €10 weekly fee).

There’s no language barrier when it comes to dancing – which is why one local group is organising classes to unite communities.

KASI, the Killarney Immigrant Support Centre, has teamed up with dance instructor John Moriarty to teach both Ukrainians and multiple cultures living in Kerry Irish set dancing steps from next week.

The first class will take place on Tuesday evenings, starting next week (September 27) at St Mary’s Parish Hall at 6.30pm and all are welcome to join.

The idea is to help Ukrainians living in Killarney and Kerry to come and have fun and get to know locals better, KASI coordinator, Marilyn Catapat-Counihan, explained to the Killarney Advertiser.

“We have a women’s group for all ages where we do crochet, sewing and art and crafts, where they can talk which is good. I had the music on and they were dancing. I asked if they would like to do dancing classes so I organised it with John Moriarty who is well known in Killarney.”

She added that the women are very excited to learn set dancing and get to know other people from the area.

“Sometimes when you meet new people the language can be a barrier and when you’re dancing everybody is moving. He will open it to everyone so there’ll be integration, it’s fun as well. They are all very excited.”

The rising cost of fuel is already having a negative effect on charity events with some limiting numbers.

On October 9, the annual Multiple Sclerosis South Kerryv Walk takes place over the Old Kenmare Road.

First run in 2002, this year’s event will celebrate 20 years since its foundation but two years were lost as a result of the pandemic.

This year’s walk will be limited to 150 people – three coach loads – so event organisers can cut back on running costs.

It will only be possible to participate in this year’s event if walkers pre-register.

“Walkers must raise at least €40 to make it worthwhile,” organiser John O’Shea told the Killarney Advertiser.

“Spaces are limited, 150 people equals three coaches and we need smaller coaches to get into the start of the Old Kenmare Road as that is just a bog road. We have limited numbers for cost and operational reasons.”

Mr O’Shea thanked event sponsors O’Callaghan Coaches and The Gleneagle Hotel for their support of the event.

Registration forms can be obtained by calling John on 087 2348824.
