A Killarney student will represent Ireland at the Rotary Youth Leadership trip to Strasbourg in February.

Having progressed beyond the Killarney stages of the competition, Abbie O'Sullivan, a Fifth Year student at St Brigid’s Presentation attended for interview in Cork on Wednesday, November 23.

Her success at this national stage of the interview process has meant that Abbie will be one of 24 students chosen from schools all around the country to represent Ireland at this prestigious event next year.

The Rotary Youth Leadership Competition is one of the longest running Rotary youth projects. It rewards young people with clear leadership potential based on their extra-curricular activities.

The finals were hosted this year by Bishopstown Rotary Club in The Lee Hotel, Cork. Abbie was interviewed by a panel of three who represented the private sector, the public sector and education. It was a tough interview but Abbie came out smiling and was happy with her performance.

Abbie, daughter of John O’Sullivan and Aisling Crosbie from Faha, hopes to study politics in University.

The exciting six day team building trip in February begins in Belfast where the students have a visit to The Titanic Centre, a tour of Stormont and they will meet with local politicians and business leaders.

They then travel to Dublin where they are invited to an information seminar and lunch hosted by the staff of the European Parliament offices.

This is followed by a tour of Dáil Eireann and further meetings with politicians. Afterwards the group fly to Strasbourg and prepare for the highlight of the trip which is a full day of debating a variety of motions at Euroscola at the European Parliament in Strasbourg along with about five hundred students from all over Europe.

Killarney Rotary Club have been hosting this at club level for many years and are delighted to say they have had many winners in the regional finals over the years who have gone on this trip and say it is an amazing experience and one they will never forget.

President Rayla Tadjimatova said she is thrilled to see this young lady go forward representing both the club and her school in Strasbourg. She congratulated Mr Jer Lyons, Abbie's teacher and thanked him for preparing her. She wishes Abbie well in her future and hopes all her dreams come true.

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.
