Locals will today (Friday) be able to tune into a unique radio station for the first time as Spirit Radio will begin broadcasting in Killarney on 91.2FM.

The station, originally launched in 2011, was only available in other counties and towns throughout Ireland.
However, now Killarney locals will be able to tune in and hear a mix of uplifting music and chat.

CEO of the inspirational station, Rob Clarke expressed his delight to be up and running.
"It’s great to finally have the opportunity to connect with listeners in this beautiful area. We’ve had a few challenges but are now launching and are keen to engage with the people here.”
Spirit Radio has a Christian ethos. The music driven station plays an upbeat mix that includes leading artists from the world of contemporary Christian music. The station is broadcasting in all the main cities and 14 of the largest towns across Ireland. Rob said the response across the country has been terrific.
“People have warmed to our mix of uplifting music and chat.”

The station provides a magazine style programme which covers current affairs, plus a mix of health, fashion, food, relationships, fitness and faith.

And radio listenership in Ireland continues to be very high and recent surveys suggest that in the current health crisis people are using radio more and more to stay in touch, Rob added.

“There is a growing interest in radio. With the current lockdown and travel restrictions, people value the companionship and sense of connection that radio brings in its own unique way. People value Spirit Radio because it is upbeat, edifying radio. Our talk shows and presenters speak about a broad range of subjects, health, relationships, nutrition, finance, current affairs, sport and faith,” he said.
“We have one studio in Bray, Co Wicklow and produce one programme for the country. We will look to build links with people in Killarney who can help provide us with insights and news from Kerry. Currently one of our journalists is working remotely in Kerry. Uniquely in Ireland, Spirit is a listener supported radio station. The station has a large and growing support team who really drive the station forward.”

Spirit Radio is available via mobile Apps, Internet and on the Irish Radio Player. It is also broadcasting across Ireland on 549 Medium Wave.

It may sound too good to be true but fat dissolving injections are as effective as the name suggests.

They are administered by our in-house Dr. Micheal Flynn who has been attending our salon for the past 10 years. It is the double chin and neck area that is treated and is suitable for both men and women. If you haven’t heard of fat dissolving, it is a very popular and relatively new treatment that is used to target stubborn pockets of fat on the jaw line and chin area. The injection dissolves and eliminates fat cells in a safe and effective way, making it perfect for dealing with stubborn fat that simply won’t budge with exercise.

The main ingredient is a fat dissolving substance sodium deoxycholate, which is found naturally in the body. This is injected into the treatment area which over time will destroy the fat cells. These are then removed from the body by its own lymphatic system, a complex network that rids the body of unwanted toxins and waste.

It is important to understand that fat dissolving injections are not a weight loss treatment. The injections should only be used on people who are a healthy size or carrying a little extra weight. It’s most effective on the pockets of fat stored under the jawline, known as the double chin, a migration of fat cells from the cheeks to the jaw line.

The injections work at a slow pace. It can take serval weeks for full results, but once it’s gone, it’s gone. The results are permanent, once you don’t gain a massive amount of weight.

The next clinic is Monday August 22. To book an appointment or more information, call Jill on 064 6632966.

Six members of the Killarney Valley Classic and Vintage Club will set out from County Meath on Wednesday on vintage tractors.

They are participating in the annual Eastern Vintage Club’s Ring of Kerry Tractor Run which is raising funds for the Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association.

Over 50 vintage tractors, including the six Killarney examples, will leave Nobber in County Meath at lunchtime on Wednesday.

After an overnight stop in the midlands on Wednesday night and Newcastle West on Thursday night, the tractors are expected in Killarney town centre just after lunchtime on Friday.

The ‘spectacular show’, now a regular feature of the Killarney summer, will bring the town to a standstill for around one hour.

On Saturday morning the group will depart Tony Wharton’s farm in Fossa before a nine-hour drive around the Ring of Kerry.

The run will finish with a spectacular drive through the Gap of Dunloe.

“We hope to pass through town around 3.30pm on Friday,” said local organiser, Tom Wharton, who is one of the six Killarney-based drivers who will undertake the 400km journey from County Meath to Killarney. “It is always a spectacular show.”

On arrival in Killarney, tractors will be joined by a group of classic cars that will depart Nobber at 9am that morning.
