THE entire community has welcomed the news that Killarney man Anthony Morris is doing so well following treatment for Lyme disease in the United States.

The former Kerry footballer returned to Ireland on Sunday and the campaign started by his family to help him in his fight continues this evening, thanks to his brother Jim who is organising the quiz event the Brains of Kerry.

“Do you long for the days when quizzes were won by those who knew the answers rather than who is the fastest on the Internet? Well, now is your chance to prove that you and your team are the ‘Brains of Kerry’ and can do it without your phones!” said Jim.

The regional semi-finals of the Brains of Kerry quiz takes place this evening, Thursday, February 23, from 8.30pm with a start time of 9pm in seven venues across Kerry with the grand final next week, Thursday, March 2. “There will be four people per team and all phones will be securely guarded during the quiz,” added Jim.

The same questions will be asked by the guest quiz masters in each venue: The Killarney Avenue, Killarney; The Manor Inn, Killorglin; The Ring of Kerry Hotel, Caherciveen; The Brook Lane Hotel, Kenmare; The Brandon Hotel, Tralee; Benners Hotel, Dingle; and The Listowel Arms Hotel, Listowel.
The cost of entry is only €40 for a team of 4 with 3 teams from each venue qualifying for the grand final on March 2 in the Killarney Avenue Hotel. “Come along and test yourself against others and not the Internet!” said Jim.

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.
