THEY packed St Mary’s Church of Ireland on Main Street last Saturday night and now Tim O’Shea and Friends are tuning up to set toes tapping yet again this weekend. St Mary’s Church of Ireland, Main Street, will host the Irish folk and traditional music group again tomorrow night, Saturday, August 5, at 8pm.

But if you just can’t wait to see them this weekend, head for St James’, Listowel, where the Another Skin Too Few show rolls into town this evening at 8pm.
Tim’s musical friends are Rosie Healy (Headford) on flute/whistle/vocal) and Mike Kelliher (Fossa), on accordion/harmonica/melodeon. “The concert features new music recently recorded and released on our new CD ‘Another Skin Too Few’ which remembers some of our finest Kerry musicians, sadly no longer with us,” said Tim.

Their settings and arrangements of a wealth of tunes are now preserved, some well-known, and some not-so-well-known traditional melodies. “The musicians remembered are Con Durham (Dublin and Dingle) who lived most of his life on the Dingle peninsula and played uilleann pipes and whistles; John Cronin (Aghadoe and New York), a fine accordion player, and Stephen Carroll (Maulykevane) who also played accordion,” said Tim.

“The legendary fiddler Paddy Cronin of (Kiskeam and Boston), who spent over 40 years in America, also contributes a tune to the collection. There is an original poem and spoken word piece, recounting a visit to Kerry from Belfast poet Adrian Fox, set to the music of Sigerson Clifford.”

Tim O’Shea contributes and original song in honour of Con Durham, and also, two Scottish songs picked up by Tim on his travels. So all in all a great local night, of local music, played by local musicians, spanning the generations, in one of Killarney’s most iconic and historic, beautiful acoustic spaces. Everyone welcome.

Gigs will also take place during Puck Fair, Killorglin, on August 11, and back to St Mary’s Killarney Church of Ireland again for Culture night on September 22. Waterville’s Tech Amergin on September 23, is also part of the group’s “mini world your of Kerry”.

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.
