GOING GREEN: Michael Brennan, Managing Director of Killarney Hotels Ltd., says he's hoping to inspire other companies to use one hundred percent green renewable electricity.

One Killarney hotel is leading by example as it's now operating entirely on one hundred percent green renewable electricity - and hope to inspire others to do the same.

For almost 60 years, The Europe Hotel & Resort has been setting the benchmark for innovation, technology, quality standards and customer service within the hospitality industry in Ireland.

They have always challenged themselves to lead by example and operate with pride. Now they say it's more important than ever for not only the hospitality industry, but also society as a whole to take significant action.

"We are acutely aware of how precious our planet is and count ourselves incredibly fortunate to be situated in one of Ireland’s most treasured locations – a UNESCO World Biosphere no less," Michael Brennan, Managing Director of Killarney Hotels Ltd., said.

"We challenged ourselves to make a significant, positive and immediate change to how we operate our business, while still maintaining the incredible facilities and level of service that we are renowned for."

Additionally, The Europe Hotel & Resort is part of the Killarney Hotels Sustainability Group, which is committed to continuously strive and reduce the environmental impact of their services and activities.

"Taking into account the scale of the resort and especially the energy consumption of facilities such as ESPA at The Europe, we needed a solution that would allow us to maintain our highly regarded amenities for our guests, while upholding our responsibilities to the environment. Operating on one hundred percent renewable electricity has enabled us to make a change that will have a direct positive impact. As a family owned company, integrity has a high status and one principle is continually “thinking of tomorrow today”. We hope that our action will inspire other companies to take further steps towards a greener, brighter future.”

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.
