Having a pedicure is the most relaxing and effective way to maintain foot hygiene and keep them clean and fresh.

Most men think that having a pedicure is too girly or not a manly thing to do. It's time to change your mindset. Paying attention to how you look and looking after your nails or any type of grooming rituals isn't going to dent your masculinity, or make you less of a man.

Going for a pedicure is a must as it helps to prevent athletes' foot, fungal infection, smelly feet, ingrown toe nails, sore, tired feet, hard, rough skin, and thickened toenails.

Pedicures are a therapeutic treatment for the feet, they are done to remove dead skin, soften your feet, remove excess cuticles, cut and shape nails correctly with the correct implements which help make it painless. The deluxe pedicure chair with built-in back massager can help relax even the most nervous of clients. It's in a private location so no one can see you, helping to take the tension out of showing your feet to someone for the first time. The jacuzzi jets are powerful enough to help soften the toughest of feet. With summer in the door, it's a great time to get the feet sorted out for sandal season and trips to the swimming pool.

I understand some men feel conflicted about getting pedicures since beauty treatments have always been associated with women. Things have changed, getting pedicures or manicures is not always about beauty but sometimes about hygiene.

We use a drill which the men love to see as it makes it feel a bit more manly, also we assure men they don't have to paint their nails, unless they want too of course!

From personal experience, having a pedicure or manicure is a great way to relax your muscles and relieve stress. Both are so therapeutic and give you the feeling of being pampered. You just sit back and relax without the stresses of the world on your shoulders. Make sure you book an appointment for a relaxing, yet essential experience, you will thank me later.

Killarney native Patrick O’Sullivan Greene will launch his second book in the Great Southern Killarney on December 2.

O’Sullivan Greene explains Éamon de Valera’s mission to gain recognition for the newly formed Irish republic in New York in 1919 in his latest book ‘Revolution at the Waldorf: America and the Irish War of Independence’.

Without American recognition and funding the young Irish Government was sure to fail against the might of the British Empire and the book tells the story of how de Valera and Ireland-based Michael Collins – much to the defiance of the British authorities at Dublin Castle – got the new State off the ground.

O’Sullivan grew up in New Street and is now based in Beaufort after a career in finance took him all over the world including Dublin, London, New York and France.

“Killarney is the natural place for me to launch the book,” he told the Killarney Advertiser.

“There will be an interesting mix of people there.”

O’Sullivan Greene published his first book, ‘Crowdfunding the Revolution: The First Dáil Loan and the Battle for Irish Independence’, in 2020.

One community group have shown that they care deeply for others by crafting handmade blankets for charity.

Using their range of skills and some colourful wool, members of Kilcummin Community Care worked together to make blankets for service users on the Kerry Cork Cancer Health Link Bus.

“Each blanket is assigned as a personal gift to the clients using the Cancer Link Bus and is kept by them,” Kate Fleming, Chairperson of Kilcummin Community Care, said.

The knitting of the squares to make the blankets began at a gathering in the Rose Hotel in 2018. It was a gathering of different volunteer groups.

The Kerry Cork Cancer Health Link Bus were requesting knitted squares to make blankets for the clients who were using their facilities, she explained.

“Kilcummin Community Care were knitting at the time, so it was decided to help out this worthy cause. We received donations of wool from people in the parish and surrounding areas. Kilcummin ICA also got involved in the efforts.”

During the two years of COVID-19, members of both organisations continued to knit and are still knitting to the present day.
