Solicitor Emma O’Brien, a Director of Clonakilty Chamber of Commerce, has been appointed to a new development board for Cork Airport. The appointment of Emma by Minister Leo Varadkar has come about as a result of lobbying by Fine Gael TD Jim Daly to have a Development Council formed to support the growth of Cork Airport and to include a representative from the West Cork region on the Council.

The purpose of the Development Council is to ensure strong engagement and alignment with key stakeholders in the region ensuring common understanding of the issues, opportunities and operating performance of the airport and to drive coordinated action to further develop Cork airport.

The Council will provide a forum for its members to be informed of Cork Airport activities and for its members to provide timely policy level feedback and advice on matters relating to community and the growth and development of Cork Airport, helping to drive more traffic through Cork Airport on a sustained basis for the benefit of the region as a whole.

The Olive Branch's Pain & Inflammation Information Evening
Thursday 10th november 2016, 7.30pm
Fernhill House Hotel, Clonakilty. Tickets €10.

Due to the phenomenal success of last year’s seminar, The Olive Branch once again welcomes brilliant young Australian naturopath Ben Brown, Technical Director at Viridian Nutrition and a leading expert on nutritional, herbal and lifestyle medicine, to Clonakilty. In the only seminar in Ireland this year, the acclaimed International speaker will share his knowledge on recent advances in the natural resolution of pain and inflammation with the people of West Cork.
The ‘Inflammation and Pain’ educational seminar will explore some of the most common conditions associated with pain; arthritis, autoimmunity, back pain, digestive disorders, menstrual pain and migraine headaches from the perspective of functional medicine and nutrition. It will also examine how chronic, low-grade inflammation is linked to chronic diseases such as depression, dementia, heart disease, and diabetes.

Key practical takes home from this seminar include the evidence for an anti-inflammatory dietary programme, specific nutritional and functional considerations in client management and the research on new, fast-acting nutritional supplements.
