Survey finds Killarney Advertiser is NUMBER ONE for news

It's been revealed this week that the Killarney Advertiser is the NUMBER ONE choice when it comes to local news - against all other printed newspapers and magazines in Killarney.

The Killarney Outlook, Kerry’s Eye and The Kerryman fair poorly in the survey with a combined eight percent of respondents citing them as a source for ‘what’s going on in Killarney’.

In comparison 26 percent of people seek out the Killarney Advertiser as their news source locally.

Voted by you, the figures, which had 1,332 responses which covered a range of all ages from young to older readers, were released in the 'Let’s Talk About Town' Killarney Chamber of Tourism and Commerce survey.

In your opinion it proves that Killarney’s ‘Favourite Friday Read’ continues to be at the heart of the community each Friday, and with availability at over 230 locations there is always an opportunity to pick a copy up.

SURVEY

The social media category - which the Killarney Advertiser also falls into with our strong online presence with daily updates and breaking news - won out with a 37 percent share across all age groups. Between traditional and online media outlets the Killarney Advertiser proved the best, followed by killarneytoday.com at 22 percent, Radio Kerry coming in at seven percent, Killarney Outlook at four percent, while both The Kerryman and the Kerry's Eye share four percent between them.

The findings were collated by the Institute of Technology in Tralee.

The survey revealed that none of the respondents under the age of 18 rely on The Kerryman or Kerry’s Eye to find out what is going on in Killarney, while Radio Kerry’s strongest segments are the youngest and oldest age groups.

"We work very hard every week to bring the latest breaking news, exclusive stories and community news to our readers,"

Michelle Crean, Editor with the Killarney Advertiser, said.

"We have a very loyal readership as well as a solid following online, and offer great pricing to our advertisers."

And the Killarney Advertiser has innovative plans in the pipeline including new video marketing campaigns and online advertising as an added option.

"We are always improving our product to bring the very best to our readers and advertisers. We'd like to say a huge thank you for your continued support."

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.
