It's been a tough year for businesses but one local beauty salon is celebrating being named the Sothys 'Top Performing Salon/Spa 2019'.

It's the second time Killarney Toning and Beauty Studio has received the award, the last time being 18 years ago in 2002.

Proprietor Jill O'Donoghue says it's a wonderful achievement and good news for her business considering the year that she has endured.

"We are delighted to get it as we have worked hard to bring it to Kerry," Jill told the Killarney Advertiser. "Sothys has been here at Killarney Toning and Beauty Salon for 25 years.

"It just shows the commitment to Sothys over the years, they are a results driven professional salon brand. And it's all thanks to the clients and their loyalty to the brand."

Located in Auriac in the Corrèze region, the homeland of the Mas family, Les Jardins Sothys is an exceptional botanical garden which has become the main source of inspiration for Sothys research.

A strong symbol expressing all of the brand’s respect for nature and for the natural benefits of plants, with Les Jardins Sothys, Sothys also aims to emphasise a real commitment to sustainable development. The Sothys philosophy is dedicated to beauty, cosmetics and well-being.

To gain the award against all the other Sothys salons in Ireland, Jill and her staff had to show product knowledge, undergo continuous service training and offer new treatments to keep clients up to date with the Sothys products on the market.

"There's a criteria to follow to get the award," Jill added.
"One of the categories is to go to Dublin to refresh our training. Obviously that's changed this year and we've been doing it on Zoom over the last few months."

And due to the current restrictions, Jill has missed out on this year's award ceremony.

"There was to be a big gala dinner in Dublin but that has been cancelled."

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!”
