Reboot Recovery offers discount for Ring of Kerry Cycle participants




One of Killarney’s newest businesses is offering Ring of Kerry Cycle participants a great deal to help prepare them for the event.

Reboot Recovery is the only dedicated recovery suite in town based in Woodlands Industrial Estate off the Killarney bypass. The facility is purpose built for people looking to get the best out of their body, reduce the risk of injury and perform to their maximum potential.

With the Ring of Kerry Cycle only a few weeks away, Reboot Recovery is offering advice and a 20% discount for all cyclists participating to help them stay fit and healthy in the lead up to the event.


“As the event gets closer participants will be hitting the road at every opportunity, trying to get as many miles in to the legs as they can," Chris Davies from Reboot said.

"It is important that people listen to their body during this training period and make sure they are giving their body adequate time to recover so that they stay injury free. Depending on your level of fitness and the training you have already banked, the number of rest days a person will need can vary, but a general rule of thumb is to allow your body 48 hours to recover.

“In the 24 to 48 hours after a tough workout you will feel the effects of DOMS (Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness). This comes from tiny, microscopic tears in your muscle fibres. Your body responds to this damage by increasing inflammation and this restricts your ability to get back out and train.

"Getting in to Reboot Recovery the day after a tough session can help reduce the effects of DOMS and will allow you to recover and get back out on that bike faster. A few recovery sessions with Reboot, coupled with good sleep, diet and hydration will ensure you are adequately recovering in the lead up to the cycle.


"We would like to offer all Ring of Kerry participants 20% off our full recovery session in the lead up to the cycle, meaning you will only pay €20 instead of €25.

"The one hour recovery session starts with five minutes in our Mobility and Activation Area using our Massage Guns and Electrical Rollers and Massage Balls, followed by 3 x 10 minutes in our market leading CET CryoSpa, Infrared Sauna and Hot Tub. After that clients chill out for 25 minutes in our NormaTec Compression Boots which give your legs a deep tissue massage."

Proinsias says farewell to Gaelscoil after 33 years

For over three decades one face has been constant at Gaelscoil Faithleann but today (Friday) it all changes as the school’s first and only Principal to date says a fond farewell.

It’s a day full of mixed emotions for Proinsias Mac Curtain who was appointed the school’s Principal on September 1, 1989.

Today, the school’s 245 children and staff will host a number of events at the school for him which are sure to stir a few emotions.

It follows a special Mass on Innisfallen Island on Saturday morning as 150 children, staff members, parents council and Board of Management members boarded a boat for the occasion. And the location was apt as the school is called after the island, Proinsias explained to the Killarney Advertiser.

“It was lovely, it was meaningful as the school is called after Innisfallen Island. I’ve been blessed with the school community down through the years. It was a pleasure to work with school staff and parents, Boards of Management – but the most important is the children. I’m proud of them and their achievements. They are great children and I’ll miss them.”

He said the school will be in great hands as Lisa Ni Iarlaithe, who has been at the school since 1991, takes over as Principal.

He also praised the hardworking staff.

“I’ll miss it but I’m comfortable to step back as the school is in excellent hands.”

Proinsias is originally from Tournafulla Co Limerick. He began his career as a teacher in Scoil Iognáid in the centre of Galway city, the largest Gaelscoil in the country at the time.

Shortly before he died his father Jerry, who loved to holiday for a few days a year in Killarney, had heard of a new school opening here and phoned Proinsias to tell him. The rest they say is history.

He says his love of Irish language was inspired by Tournafulla Primary School Principal Liam O Loineacháin and in St Ita’s College Abbeyfeale by Jim Tierney and the late Johnny Nelligan.

And although three decades is a long time, Proinsias says it flew by and that he has seen many changes over the years. The first is seeing the children of former pupils coming to school. The second is the advancement of technology – some good and some not so good!

“The biggest change was the growth of technology, the changeover to the whiteboard and the use of devices which makes it challenging for parents. It’s wonderful you can access so much, but there are advantages and disadvantages.”

He added a huge thanks to his wife Karen who supported him down through the years when he was out late at meetings, adding that she was “very patient”.

He also thanked Sean O Luanaigh.

“He has been my chairperson since the start and has been such a tremendous support, help and guidance down through the years.”

In retirement he plans to spend more time with his family including his three children Ruadhán, Meadhbh and Cormac.

He also plans to get more involved in Beaufort Tidy Towns as well as the Annals of Innisfallen project.

“It’s always been an interest of mine. I also plan to relax for a few weeks, make more time for family, and I look forward to playing more trad music, bee keeping, gardening and travel.”

With an increase in daylight hours there’s no better time to clock up the ‘Kingdom Kilometres’ on foot or by cycling along the county’s two new Greenways.

The recently opened Kingdom of Kerry Greenways between Tralee and Fenit and between Listowel and Abbeyfeale are already proving hugely popular with locals and visitors to Kerry.

Representatives of the tourism Industry, local public representatives, travel writers and influencers gathered in Kerry on Monday to experience the exciting new tourist attractions and welcome the arrival of the longer daylight hours as the clocks changed over to summertime.

Sarah Hanrahan, a social media influencer who posts about Irish travel and has more than 100,000 Instagram followers, described the experience.

“Ireland has some of the most amazing outdoor spaces. For a lot of my followers and other people, connecting with green spaces has become much more important to their overall sense of well-being as well as their health and fitness. It’s been really gorgeous to experience the Tralee to Fenit, and Listowel to Limerick Kingdom of Kerry Greenways; a fantastic trip sampling the warm hospitality of Kerry and a great reminder of the active holiday options that are right on our doorstep.”

The new purpose-built trails provide an accessible and inclusive experience for visitors of all abilities.

Mayor of Tralee, Cllr Mikey Sheehy and the Mayor of Listowel, Cllr Aoife Thornton, said that the greenways offer an exceptional recreational amenity for everyone to enjoy.

“The greenways are situated in some of Kerry’s most scenic landscapes and offer spectacular and safe off-road facilities for people of all ages to enjoy as the landscape comes into bloom. They also offer warm hospitality at the trail head towns of each route.”
