Want to learn to be more confident at work and in your social life?

JOINING Toastmasters is a life-changing experience, say its Killarney members. Toastmasters International was set up in 1922 by Ralph Smedley with the aim of improving public speaking, interview and leadership skills.

The Killarney Toastmasters Club hosted its annual dinner at the Randles Hotel on Saturday, where club member Debby Looney reflected how clubs have the same set of goals to this day – to help people improve their speaking and leadership skills so they can be more confident at work and socially.

“I went in myself hardly able to keep a conversation going, usually looking at my shoes, but now, though I am not a great speaker by any means, I do have the gumption to get up in front of people and have my say!” said Debby. “In terms of leadership, through taking on roles at a meeting you learn how to delegate, be fair and understanding, and what was important for me, how to say no without offending or feeling like you’ve let someone down!”

There are clubs in Killarney, Tralee and West Limerick (Newcastlewest) and a club is in the process of being formed in Listowel. “It is not formal, or stuffy which seems to be a common misconception. Our youngest members are 18, and we have members from all walks of life, retirees, farmers, manual labourers, accountants, pharmacists, shop assistants and home makers- the list is endless!” said Debby.

Toastmasters also organises community outreach programmes, for instance in St Brigid’s Presentation Secondary and St Brendan’s College, Killarney. Killarney Toastmasters Club meets every second and fourth Tuesday of the month, in The Dromhall Hotel; email killarneytoastmasters@gmail.com or call 086-6088156.

70 toddlers from Currow Play School have become Ireland’s littlest fundraisers as they stepped out to raise vital funds for vulnerable children.

They took part in the Barnardos Big Toddle which this year has the theme of ’Community Helpers’.

Barnardos currently works with just under 18,000 children and families across Ireland and the funds raised will support Barnardos Early Years services.

“This year, Currow Play School turns 25 and we have been taking part in Barnardos Big Toddle since 2006, which is 18 years of toddling in aid of vulnerable children,” Catherine Fleming form Currow Play School said.
“Our toddle is a highlight for the children and the team every year. It’s fantastic to get the little ones involved in something so worthwhile at a young age, it’s always a great day of fun. Barnardos provides a huge number of services in communities across Ireland, but these can only continue with help from the public. The toddle runs throughout June so I would implore anyone with toddlers or wobblers at home to sign up for Barnardos Big Toddle supported by Pipin Pear today.”

Anyone wishing to take part can register today at www.barnardos.ie/bigtoddle.

In need of rejuvenation after lockdown or looking for a great gift idea for Father’s Day? All the facials we offer are suitable for both men and women. CACI treatments truly deliver visible results.

It’s the equivalent to a good workout in the gym, but for the face. Our gentleman’s CACI facial treatment targets the razor bumps, in-grown hairs, and skin impurities. It finishes with a tightening and firming of the muscles resulting in a youthful well defined jawline. Since reopening I have seen a huge uptake on the male facials.

We work with the CACI Synergy system, a medical grade machine which provides you with treatments for acne scarring, dehydrated skin, fine lines and wrinkles, and loose sagging skin. Along with offering the full facial we specialise in the eye revive which is great during these times as the eyes are highlighted.

We also focus on the jowl lift which concentrates on the neck and jawline. A course of treatments is recommended for best results.
 

UNIQUE

What makes the CACI facial so unique is it offers real results without damaging the skin. It works deep into the basal layer of the skin, strengthening the foundation of the skin and stimulating the growth of collagen and elastin. It originated in the medical field working on stroke patients and Bell’s Palsy suffers. They discovered that the side they were working on the effected side, started to look younger and more lifted after treatments, hence its entry into the beauty industry. CACI treatments give visible results even after one treatment.

The dual action of SPED microcurrent/LED light therapy technology is so advanced and innovative.

The entire process takes 80 minutes. It starts with deep cleansing using an orbital micro-dermabrasion with light therapy, followed by the ultra-sonic actuator for deep cleansing and gentle exfoliating, propelling impurities to the skin’s surfaces, followed by micro current lifting using a specific technique, this also includes the LED light therapy. We then use the wrinkle comb – an alternative to Botox – which is intense light therapy. It’s all finished off with a silicone mask soak in hyaluronic acid, which has an extremely cooling effect and is hydrating. We use a galvanic current to push this amazing product deep into the lower levels of the skin. A truly results driven facial suitable for both men and women.
