Ad­vice on car­dio fit­ness

The Kerryman (North Kerry) - - NEWS - By TADHG EVANS

IT proved a mem­o­rable week­end for four Kerry teenagers, as they re­alised the high­est achieve­ment an Ir­ish Girl Guide can man­age: a Trail Blazer Na­tional Guide Award.

Just over 100 girls from around Ire­land made the trip to Croke Park re­cently with their fam­i­lies to col­lect a Trail Blazer gold pin – the big­gest hon­our that can be pre­sented to a girl guide.

It was a par­tic­u­larly mem­o­rable oc­ca­sion for Ken­mare Girl Guides, who had two rep­re­sen­ta­tives – Han­nah Coombs and Emer McClin­tock – present to ac­cept the pres­ti­gious ac­co­lade, at­tained for suc­cess­ful com­ple­tion of a se­ries of chal­lenges, in­clud­ing team­work ac­tiv­i­ties, out­door sur­vival skills, com­mu­nity ser­vice, global aware­ness and work­ing with younger IGG mem­bers.

But it wasn’t just Ken­mare fly­ing the green and gold, as both Ni­amh Mur­phy (Fossa Girl Guides), Laura Kenny (Torc St Mary’s Girl Guides) also made the trip to Dublin to ac­cept pins of their own.

“All the re­cip­i­ents have worked hard on their own ini­tia­tive and demon­strated self-mo­ti­va­tion, com­mit­ment and en­thu­si­asm,” Ir­ish Girl Guides’ Pres­i­dent Maureen Mur­phy told The Ker­ry­man of the girls’ achieve­ments. “The girls have blazed a trail and will con­tinue to blaze a trail – not just in their com­mu­ni­ties, but in wider so­ci­ety too.” AT this time of year it’s easy to give up ex­er­cise and veg­e­tate in that favourite chair but it’s not good for your heart.

That’s why Kil­lar­ney-based heart health group Heart­beat will wel­come fit­ness ex­pert and car­dio fit­ness ex­er­cise ad­vi­sor Edele Daly to their monthly meet­ing this Mon­day, Oc­to­ber 30 at 8pm.
