Tributes have been paid to Fr Kevin McNamara of Glenflesk parish who passed away on Tuesday of this week.

The popular priest was appointed to the Glenflesk Parish in July after previously serving in Killarney, Rathmore and Kenmare. The County Clare native had been in Moyvane for six years before taking over at St Agatha’s Church.

"There is widespread shock and sadness at the sudden death of Fr. Kevin,” Bishop Ray Browne said in a statement,

“Fr. Kevin was in hospital for a number of days, when Tuesday morning he suddenly took ill and died. Fr Kevin was a man of huge energy and colour. We all regret his passing. Rest in peace, Fr. Kevin.

He has been described by friends and colleagues as a larger than life character.

Fr Kevin was very active in his short time in Glenflesk and as recently as last October ran a concert in the Gleneagle Hotel to raise funds to re-furbish Barraduff Church.

“We are numbed by the suddenness and shock of it all,” Fr Kieran told the Killarney Advertiser. “He was an active man, and a man in active ministry until he was hospitalised quite recently. He served in Killarney too and is well known in the community. He was full of enthusiasm for doing up Barraduff church. He was a very active priest and achieved an awful lot in his short time in Glenflesk.”

Mayor of Killarney Marie Moloney said she was greatly saddened to hear the news.

“It was with great sadness that I heard of the death of Fr Kevin McNamara, a larger than life character who would always leave you with a smile on your face,” she said, “ Fr Kevin was very popular among his parishioners and indeed in the far broader community, He was always engaging with the people and made a lot of people feel very special. His presence among the people will be greatly missed.”

TD Danny Healy Rae added: I am very saddened to hear of the untimely passing of Fr. Kevin McNamara.He was a very close and dear friend to all my family, we will forever miss him, he was a very special friend of my late Father and he officiated at his funeral Mass and as late as last week at his Anniversary Mass in Killcummin. He was a larger than life person, he did great work for individuals and communities and was so kind and straight with everyone, he is a huge loss to the Community and the County of Kerry."

Fr. Kevin will be reposing in St. Agatha's Church, Glenflesk on Sunday December 26from 10.00am to 12 noon and in the Church of the Assumption, Moyvane on Sunday evening from 2.00 pm to 4.00 pm.

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.
