Four of Ireland's top young chefs are combining their culinary skills to create an exclusive tasting menu event for a Kerry charity.

Jason Nolan of Celtic Whiskey Bar & Larder in Killarney, Conor Halpenny of The Square in Dundalk, Dan Guerin of Cush in Ballycotton and Andrew Ryan, formerly of Ashford Castle Hotel in Mayo are organising the event for Monday September 14 at 7pm.

It'll take place at Celtic Whiskey Bar & Larder on New Street. For one night only, attendees will have the opportunity to try the best of Irish produce from four of Ireland’s finest young chefs, along with exquisitely paired wine pairings from Celtic Whiskey Shop & Wines on the Green.

Three out of the four chefs have all been winners or finalists of Euro-Toques Chef of the Year - Ireland’s premier culinary competition which celebrates Ireland’s young culinary talents. In addition, Pastry Chef Andrew Ryan was named a finalist at the Valrhona Patisserie Championship in 2019.

Tickets for the event are priced at €100 and include a cocktail on arrival created by esteemed General Manager Luke Crowley Holland of the Celtic Whiskey Bar & Larder, four dinner courses from four renowned chefs with wine pairings donated by the Celtic Whiskey Shop & Wines on The Green as well as canapes and petit fours. The majority of the proceeds from the evening will be donated to local service, Kerry Specialist Palliative Care unit, a service which provides excellent holistic care for patients, their families and loved ones.

“I approached my good friend Conor Halpenny about being involved in a tasting evening and especially for the year that’s in it," Head Chef at the Celtic Whiskey Bar & Larder, Jason Nolan said. "We thought it would be a great way to highlight some fantastic Irish producers, encourage consumers to dine out and of course do this all with raising money for a great cause. This year to date has been very challenging for everyone and its services like the Kerry Specialist Palliative Care unit that will be need the extra funds.”

Tickets are now available and must purchased in advance from Head of Marketing Julie Christie, contact julie@celticwhiskey.com to register your interest.

All staff on the night will be volunteering their time and many generous suppliers are sponsoring food, while Celtic Whiskey Shop and Wines on The Green managing director Alistair Alpine is donating all the wines to accompany the dinner courses.

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.
