As we are all starting to re-enter the world of socialising and back to the office our feet will certainly need some adjusting.

After wearing slippers, runners or using bare feet for the best part of two years, your feet will get a shock when you try to dress up in high heels, leather or court shoes. It's normal to feel uncomfortable, so it's time to start breaking them in again. Some people may even think that their feet have grown, but it is more likely that your ligaments and tendons have relaxed, which lets the arch drop causing discomfort and flattening thus lengthening of the feet. It's possible to exercise your feet in a few different ways.

Step one:

Try to write a few words by holding a maker between your big toe and second toe.

Step Two:

Try picking up a towel and move it from the A to B.

Step Three:

Try picking up marbles of different sizes from the ground and put them in a bowl.

These little exercises will work on improving all the little supporting muscles in the feet, helping keep the feet strong and thus improve balance.

If you're suffering from thickened toe nails and having trouble cutting them we can sort that out using a nail drill. Corns can be very uncomfortable also and may stop you wearing your favourite shoes. This is a simple fix if treated early. Hardened, cracked skin on the feet can be uncomfortable and may stop you moving, so it's a good idea to have your feet treated in the jacuzzi foot spa infused with peppermint and tea tree for healing and softening. Then have the skin either professionally bladed off, if required, or foot rasped. Or if you haven't been out of the house and feel heavy legs from lack of use, a really good place to start is having a leg massage done to get the circulation flowing and bring on the feel-good factor of healthy blood flow.

The successes of the Kerry, Munster and All-Ireland Fleadh’s were celebrated with Kilcummin CCÉ members, their families and friends in the clubhouse in Kilcummin on Sunday night.

The talent within the branch was clearly evident with a packed trophies table. Indeed some of the successes over the last number of months were replayed in a relaxed, jovial atmosphere that meant that all attending had a great night’s entertainment.

“We had demonstrations of winning sets across all age groups and then we moved onto the musicians who pulled out all the stops to entertain the large crowd, packed into the clubhouse,” Derek O’Leary, Kilcummin CCÉ PRO, told the Killarney Advertiser.

John Moriarty, who has recently retired from his role of Supervisor with Kilcummin Rural Development was acknowledged with a presentation to reflect the outstanding work that he has done to enhance and grow Kilcummin Comhaltas over his 25 years in his role, he added.

“Much thanks and praise was also offered to Mary, Adrian and Conor Moriarty, all involved in the progression of dancing and music within the Kilcummin branch. The music and entertainment continued with Helen Kerins and Denis Crowley late into the night. We’re looking forward to next year already!”
