Safe Streets plan now faces county wide challenge

The town’s Safe Streets programme is set to face a second challenge tomorrow (Monday).

 

Last week, the Killarney Advertiser was the first local media outlet to reveal that Cllr Donal Grady was seeking legal advice on the Safe Streets programme.

Grady believes that the programme, which involves the widening of footpaths in the town centre and the closure of Plunkett St and Kenmare Place to traffic, is Kerry County Council’s covert way of introducing pedestrianisation to the town centre without proper consultation with elected members, the public and town centre businesses.

The Council argues that the plan is in place to allow social distancing in the centre as the county continues to battle COVID-19.

At last week’s Killarney Municipal District meeting several other elected councillors expressed their anger at the way the plan has been executed and the way Kerry County Council has communicated changes to the plan.

Cllr Jackie Healy-Rae, who is elected in the Castleisland Municipal District, is set to challenge the Safe Streets plan in every town in the county at tomorrow’s meeting of Kerry County Council’s executive and elected members.

He will ask: “How much has the Town Centre Mobility Plans cost Kerry County Council to date. How much of this was funded by Kerry County Council's own resources and how much was drawn down in grants. Can a breakdown of the cost be given per Municipal District and a breakdown given on what the money was spent on, listing all materials and their quantities i.e. bollards, machinery, labour costs, and anything else. Can this be given per Municipal District also. Please include any funding paid to outside contractors for the purpose of the Town Centre Mobility Plan.”

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.
