Positive response to our McShain campaign

Published

In last week’s edition of the Killarney Advertiser, historian Damien Switzer put forward the idea of renaming Killarney House & Gardens in honour of the late John McShain, the great American businessman and philanthropist who bought a large chunk of Killarney and gave it back to us for nothing. He also called for a statue to be erected in McShain’s honour in a prominent location in town.

I agreed with Damien and it appears as though I’m not the only one; many of our readers got in touch this past week to voice their approval. Here are some of the responses we received:

Eileen Sheehan: “Absolutely, it should be called John McShain Memorial Park and there should be a statue erected. What a generous couple. Now now we can all enjoy its magic.”

Anne Marie Kennelly: “I fully agree that there should be a section of the Park with perhaps a statue, sculpture or plaque for the McShain family. There should be a room in Killarney House given to explaining his story and his construction and career achievements. His generosity was immense and all future generations and visitors should learn about it. But I’d be slow to tear down the wall. It provides such peace and tranquility within the gardens. No noise pollution at all.”

Pat Buckley: “A definite ‘YES’. And not before time. Thank you for highlighting it.”

Noreen Healy: “Fair play Adam Moynihan and Damien Switzer for two very good articles. About time the McShain family are recognised for all they have given to the community. Not even a blade of grass or tree named after them. Of course Killarney House & Gardens should be named after them and about time. My family have had strong connections with McShain family over the years and would have worked for them and known them personally. Best of luck in your campaign.”

It may be the last few weeks of the holidays but, it is no better time treat yourself to a body detox wrap.

This wrap is suitable for males and females.
This wrap will boost your energy levels and make you feel like yourself again. Having loads of BBQs and nights out or feeling bloated and sluggish, unmotivated.
This wrap is a great way to boost energy by increasing lymphatic drainage, which helps the body’s natural detox system to release bad toxins. By aiding the lymphatic system and increasing the negative, harmful toxins. Your body will immediately start to feel better, more motivated, and increased energy. Your skin will feel better and bring your glow back.

The process is having sea clay applied all over the body, followed by bandages wrapped in a specific way to lift and firm the skin and finally you are tucked up in a heated blanket….. to sweat out the negative toxins. following the treatment, you have a three-day detox, no tea, coffee, fried fatty foods, fizzy drinks, processed foods or even a shower to leave the active clay and get to work on the lymphatic system.

This is a seriously great treatment, that really works if you follow the process. As the heat from the blanket helps to open your pores on the body the sea clay can go into the deep layers of the skin, when you unwrap the clay is trapped in the skin and its ingredients get to work.

Bentonite has excellent drainage properties for full detox and skin clarification.

Magnesium sulphate stimulates peripheral skin circulation, exfoliating and anti-inflammatory.
Magnesium Chloride has valuable mineral salt and permits cellular balance, combats stress and fluid retention, and has anti-bacterial properties.

Zinc oxide, bacterium properties and anti-inflammatory.

Sodium Chloride detoxifies tissues and tightens the skin.

They work best the longer they are left on the skin and the longer you detox. I wouldn’t claim a 2-hour treatment can do amazing results without the homework. The clay isn’t dirty looking on the skin, it looks more like a cloud of chalky dust on the outer skin, the active properties have been absorbed into the skin.
The skin may feel a little different while the clay is working, but the results are worth it. It’s a great treatment after weight loss, pregnancy, liposuction or just re-energises you as a whole.

Organisers of Puck Fair have taken King Puck down from his platform to protect the wild mountain goat from the heat.

Today mark’s day two of the three-day fair in Killorglin town. As part of the fair’s tradition a wild mountain goat presides over the town from his tall platform over the course of the three days.

Organisers employ a dedicated vet to look after the goat and a team of experienced goat handlers are also on duty for the duration of the festival.

There is also a temperature monitoring device on the platform.

As temperatures hit 29 degrees today (Thursday), the vet and handlers decided it was safer for the goat to be removed from the platform for the rest of the day.

“He is currently resting in the shade,” spokesperson Marcella O’Connor told the Killarney Advertiser. “The handlers were monitoring him in case it got too hot, the decision was made to take him down, and the vet says he is happy.”

A decision will be made tomorrow (Friday) on the goat’s return to the platform for the final day of the fair.
