Kerry actors proved they've got talent as they took home some prestigious Irish awards on Sunday night.

It was yet again another triumph for Killarney's best loved actress Jessie Buckley who secured two Irish Film and Television Awards (IFTAs) on RTÉ hosted by comedian Deirdre O'Kane. The event, which was presented virtually this year due to the ongoing pandemic, showed an emotional Jessie accept her awards; 'Winner of Best Actress' for her role in 'Wild Rose', and 'Best Supporting Actress Drama' for Chernobyl.

Tralee native and Love/Hate star, Tom Vaughan-Lawlor, won the 'Best Actor' award for his role in the movie 'Rialto'.

On screen Jessie appeared emotional saying "This is a complete honour, I feel completely shellshocked".

The Muckross native, who is currently living in the UK, is daughter of Tim and Marina Buckley and cut her teeth in music and drama with Killarney Musical Society. She began her career in 2008 as a contestant on the BBC TV talent show 'I'd Do Anything' and has gone on to star in many more top films and stage performances since.

Her latest roles include 'The Lost Daughter' which she has just finished filming in Greece with Paul Mescal, star of hit Irish drama 'Normal People'. She was due to appear on stage at the English National Theatre in 'Romeo and Juliet' but that has been halted due to COVID.

Fans can also catch her in Season 4 of 'Fargo' which will be coming out on Netflix shortly, and she is also currently on Netflix in 'I'm Thinking of Ending Things'. And unfortunately her film 'Misbehaviour' where Jessie stars alongside Kiera Knightley had just been released in cinemas as the country went into lockdown.

"All her roles are so diverse," her proud father Tim told the Killarney Advertiser this week.
"She even has the ability to suspend the belief that she is my daughter when I'm watching her on screen. She has the properties to get inside your head."

He said that he is delighted she is getting the recognition she deserves.

"It's nice to see. She's been very lucky, but she has made deliberate choices - she's quite picky with her roles."

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.
