There has been further public outcry in the town of Killarney after 70 International Protection Seekers were placed in accommodation on the Muckross Road.

.

The 70 males arrived on Wednesday afternoon and are now living in the Harmony Inn.

Residents are up in arms over the move as the asylum seeker arrived ahead of a promised meeting with the Minister for Children, Equality, Disability, Integration and Youth Roderic O'Gorman.

Earlier in the week, Kerry TD Danny Healy Rae said he secured a meeting between the minister and local residents.

“I am very pleased following my requests to Minister O’Gorman that he has been in contact with me to inform me that his team will meet with myself and members of the Killarney community regarding the placement of asylum seekers on the Muckross Road,” he said.

“I am awaiting further clarification as to when and where this very important engagement will take place.”

The meeting did not take place ahead of Wednesday’s relocation of the International Protection Seekers to the Muckross Road hotel adding to the already growing public anger in the area.

There has been several public meeting on the issue and a protest march in Killarney last Saturday.

Former councillor Donal Grady vented his frustration in a social media post.

“Just to let you know the refuges have arrived at The Harmony Inn, Muckross Road. [They] were tucking into a nice meal around 5pm [on Wednesday] .,” he posted.

“I had a man today who is being evicted from his home after 15 years. This is a disgrace. Our own come last again.

“We have more than our share. Our name in Killarney Is going fast. No Infrastructure in place.”

Gleeson Dental, located on St Anthony’s Place, is now offering facial aesthetics.

It is the latest offering from the town centre practice.

Dr Susan Gleeson graduated as a general dental surgeon 27 years ago.

She previously worked in England and Cork before returning home to Killarney in 2009 to take over her father’s dental practice with her sister Katie.

“More recently, I decided to pursue my keen interest in facial aesthetics. Hence, I embarked on an intensive training course,” she told the Killareny Advertiser.
“This mentorship is under the guidance of Dr Sheila Li, a Harley Street based dentist with over 10 years’ experience in facial aesthetics. Every year following an interview process, Sheila takes on six trainees and I was lucky enough to get this amazing training opportunity.”
The course is a year-long process involving in-depth learning and hands-on clinical training days in Dr Sheila’s Harley Street clinic.
The course, also, extends to treatment planning cases with Dr Sheila, thus allowing access to her vast knowledge when planning treatments for Dr Gleeson’s patients.
“Therefore, I am now able to offer a vast array of facial aesthetic treatments at Gleeson Dental. These treatments include the use of Botox to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. In addition to this, Botox has a wide range of additional applications, including the treatment of tooth grinding, headaches, gummy smiles, neck bands and excessive underarm sweating,” she added.
Dermal filler treatments are, also, available to treat issues related to volume loss while skin booster treatments such as Sunekos and Profhilo can be used to regenerate and rehydrate tired looking skin.
Facial aesthetics may conjure up images of over-filled expressionless people but Susan hopes to change people’s view of it.

With properties both for rent and for sale in short supply, prices in the Killarney area have remained strong.

In fact, houses with the V93 eircode were, once again, the most expensive homes in Kerry over the past 12 months according to data published by the CSO Residential Property Price Index. The report shows that in the year to December 2023, the average cost of buying a home in Kerry was €242,000 up 5% from the previous year’s figure of €230,000
Nationally that figure now stands at €327,000.
The average house price within the V93 eircode region was €284,000, 17% approx. above the average price for a home within the county.
With supply levels at an all time low and with very little new construction in the pipeline, there is little sign of this changing in the immediate term.

Commenting on the market, Ted Healy of DNG, has expressed concern with the low volume of properties available for sale at present.
‘We have lots of interested buyers seeking property in the Killarney area but unfortunately, we cannot satisfy the demand at present. The past 12 months has seen us securing sales in record time for record levels.”

DNG Ted Healy will be launching a new development of townhouses in the Woodlawn area to the market in the coming months and report that demand is exceptionally high.
The expect these properties to sell out in record time.
And with construction due to commence shortly on another scheme of detached houses on Muckross Road, it is looking like a busy year ahead.
However, this will not be enough to satisfy the demand at present. Properties within the V93 area are highly sought after and in very short supply, resulting in strong prices being achieved.
So is now a good time to sell your property? Yes, according to DNG Ted Healy who is actively seeking properties for sale to satisfy their ever expanding list of buyers.
