It has been a week that they'll never forget - meeting their newborn son for the very first time - and getting out of Ukraine safely before the Russian invasion yesterday (Thursday).

Dermot and Dorothy Moynihan from Killorglin were full of emotions as they were up against the clock last week to get into and out of Ukraine to get their baby boy Luke - who was born by surrogate last week - and bring him home to Kerry.

They were able to fly from Lviv near the Polish border on Monday morning. A day later Russian President Vladimir Putin's troops arrived in the Eastern provinces of the country. The situation there is getting more and more volatile by the day.Luke was born one week sooner than his due date and should have arrived into this world on the same day Russian troops entered the country.Dermot and Dorothy faced international diplomatic complications including word from the Irish Government advising all Irish citizens to leave the country.The couple arrived in the Ukraine last Thursday but thanks to huge efforts from their Irish and Ukrainian legal teams, and help from the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA), they secured travel paperwork for baby Luke on Sunday. They flew from Lviv to London Stansted on Monday and onwards to Dublin on Tuesday.“It has been quite the adventure,” Dermot told the Killarney Advertiser. “There has been huge emotions in the last week. One of our relations joked that Luke has already been in London – they have never been in London. We are keeping all the press clippings of this time for him – it will be a very special memory for Luke.”He paid tribute to his legal team and DFA officials who helped him get out of the country but also paid tribute to the people there.“Ukraine is an amazing country, the people are lovely, they are very hard working and it’s a very safe place,” he added. “They really did not believe this could happen – there is no way Putin will do it. They are trying very hard to modernise the country and now all this work is pulled away from them.”

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.
