Solution in sight for New Road traffic congestion

Plans to widen the junction where New Road meets Rock Road have taken a step forward.

It is hoped to build a feeder lane on to Rock Road by cutting back a portion of the front lawn of Killarney Garda Station.

The Killarney Advertiser understands that a deal in principle has been agreed with Killarney Gardai but the land is owned by the Office of Public Works and the final decision rests with this Government agency.

A detailed plan on the junction is expected to be published by the end of March following a request for an update by Cllr Brendan Cronin.

“Following on from previous meetings, Kerry County Council has prepared plans to assist in the traffic flow along the New Road. Consultation has taken place with An Garda Síochána, Bus Éireann and the school principals. We are currently finalising the plan and once finalised will be presented to [elected] members before the end of March.”

Meanwhile there have been calls for clarity regarding the part-time one way system that is in place on New Road at school drop-off and pick-up times.

A one-way system operates at certain times during the day which forces motorists to approach New Road from the Port Road side and prevents motorists entering the busy school street from Rock Road.

However, since the beginning of the new school year last September some schools have changed their starting and finishing times and these times do not correspond with the times set out by Kerry County Council to allow the temporary one-way street arrangement.

To bring both the Council’s and schools’ timings into line would require a public consultation.

Needless to say we all know what cellulite looks like, but there are many ways to reduce its appearance and help us look and feel better about it.

Yes, people often assume it’s down to a weight issue but it is associated with diet and exercise. It can affect all ages, male and female. There are many ways to help reduce and eliminate it.

Nothing can substitute for eating a healthy diet and getting enough exercise. Just as with other signs of ageing, cellulite is best managed first and foremost by focusing on maintaining a healthy weight long term. But certain topical treatments may help it become less noticeable and improve skin’s overall appearance, if used regularly. Dry body brushing is one technique to try by brushing upwards every day towards the heart for increased blood circulation.

Using anti-cellulite products can help if you are doing regular exercise and watching your diet, but if you feel you need a boost to get you headed in the right direction, there is a few different salon treatments that can be of benefit.

The Universal Contour Body Wrap is a great treatment which results in inch loss due to the detoxing effect of the sea clay or also the Electro Cellulite Massage rollers (ECM) by CACI Machine, which is a 12-session course over four weeks, this is recommended for desired results.

Pilates is always an amazing lifestyle choice. Having the toning tables for the past 30 years in Killarney, we are lucky to hear the amazing results from our clients past and present. Some have even been with us since we started! The male and female reviews have reported reduced cellulite with weekly appointments, improved posture, increased energy and mostly reduced cellulite.

Two Kerry-based car dealers are part of a national campaign to provide essential aid for Ukraine.

Donagh Hickey Motors in Rathmore and Adam’s of Tralee are the two local garages that have signed up for the project.

Under the scheme, the garages will be used as collection hubs for essential equipment that will be transported to the war torn country.

“We have a very large and loyal customer base and we are appealing through them to make donations,” Adam’s of Tralee General Manager, Marcus O’Shea, told the Killarney Advertiser.

“Any dealer could have signed up for this but we are one of only two in Kerry to do so.”

The garages, following advice from humanitarian agencies in Ukraine, have created a very specific list of what is urgently needed out there.

These include generators, solar battery chargers, batteries, power banks, flashlights, drones and tablets.

Medical equipment like First Aid kits (NATO standard) and other medical items are also sought.

People can assist by either dropping goods to the two garages or by making a donation via www.safeharbourforukraine.org.
