Killarney Municipal District executive has given an undertaking to the Ballydribbeen Residents Association that it will include their concerns in all future road plans in the area.

The association brought an online deputation - a new departure for Council and locals in these COVID-19 times - highlighting various road safety concerns in the area.
Association chairman Liam Grimes and Martina O’Riordan addressed Wednesday’s Council meeting via online video link. The deputation was brought by Cllr Marie Moloney.

They raised several issues, which included the safe access and exit from the large housing estate on the Tralee road, pedestrian crossings in the area and traffic management at the Cleeney Roundabout.

They explained that nearly 1,300 people now live in the estate and that the estate's roads are also used for access to Killarney Celtic and Killarney Legion playing pitches.

“Exiting our estate is an absolute lottery,” Martina told the meeting, while Liam added that “Ballydribbeen is developing for 20 years but there is little done to improve our infrastructure”.

SURVEY

KMD is currently carrying out a traffic survey on the nearby Madam’s Hill junction in an effort to find a solution to the notorious traffic blackspot there.

Separately the local authority is carrying out another traffic survey on the four roundabouts that link the Killarney Bypass from Ballydowney to Park Road. The Cleeney Roundabout is included in this survey.
Area engineer John Ahern gave a commitment to those present at the meeting and to the online deputation that future Ballydribbeen works would be included in the Madam’s Hill project once that gets off the ground.

“The area has a large population of people and connectivity has to be addressed,” he said.
He added that he hopes the findings of the traffic surveys could be brought before a Council meeting early in the New Year.

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.
