THE Taoiseach Enda Kenny had high praise for Killarney company Tricel during a visit to Kerry today. Mr Kenny arrived at Tricel’s headquarters, at Ballyspillane Industrial Estate, shortly after lunchtime, as part of a whistle-stop tour of the county.

Referring to Tricel’s business links across the globe, the Taoiseach said: “Tricel is an example of an Irish company that is going the way it should be moving, not just focused on one country."

Mr Kenny had also been present at Tricel’s signing of contract agreements during an official visit in 2015 which took place in France.

Following this, the Taoiseach highlighted his intention of visiting Tricel’s company headquarters in Killarney once the opportunity arose, and this visit was duly scheduled for today. Mr Kenny was taken on a tour of the plant, where the owners, the Stack family, highlighted the company’s continued expansion, which includes the purchase of three new companies last year and the current opening of a second French location based in Avignon.

The ongoing success of the company has generated a large listing of job opportunities and led to the filling of over 65 new positions last year and a further 24 so far to date this year alone, both in Kerry and throughout the UK.
The Taoiseach, who concludes his visit to the county in the newly refurbished Coastguard station in Waterville, started his itinerary in Tralee.

He turned the sod on the new Kerry Sports Academy at the Institute of Technology, Tralee. This €16.5 million facility, scheduled to open in autumn 2018.

The Taoiseach also joined forces with the CEO of IDA Ireland, Martin Shanahan, to cut the ribbon on the IDA’s new Advance Technology Building in Tralee as well as unveiling IDA Irelands new website promoting Kerry for Foreign Direct Investment (FDI), “Invest in Kerry”.

The Advance Technology building is designed to provide high quality production and office accommodation, which will be suitable for future technology or life sciences projects.

IDA Ireland’s CEO Martin Shanahan said: “IDA continues to market Kerry for investment throughout our global network of offices. Today, our new marketing tool - 'Invest in Kerry' - which highlights the key attributes of Kerry as a location for investment, will go live.

“From talent to property availability investors can go online and experience what Kerry has to offer. Potential Investors can hear about the experiences of companies like Fexco, Astellas, Borg Warner, JRI America and Liebherr.

“Kerry is a great place to invest. It has an existing base of overseas and indigenous companies, fantastic amenities and the Institute of Technology making it an attractive place to live and work. These attributes combined with IDA’s new world-class property solution, suitable for clients in the pharma, med tech, engineering or technology sectors, makes Kerry a compelling location for investment.”

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.
