Laois family take to our screens tonight in the hopes of becoming Ireland’s Fittest Family

Ireland Fittest Family is back on our screens tonight where a Killeshin family will be competing.

Following the lead of the McDonald family from Ballyroan and the Mulhares in last year’s series, The Mahers will battle it out to claim the €15,000 on offer.

Dad Nicholas is the oldest member of the team and he is very well known in GAA circles as he is currently a coach with the Killeshin senior football team who will contested the Laois championship final against Portlaoise.

Nicholas is joined by three of his children – Fionn, Meave and Cara.

All three are members of St Abban’s athletics club and Fionn, who is the oldest, is also part of the Killeshin senior football panel.

Meave and Cara, 19 and 18, are part of the successful St Abban’s ladies team who have claimed the National Premier Division title for the last two years running.

They then went on to represent Ireland at the European Club Championships in Portugal and Finland over the last two years.

We can’t wait to watch them compete in this year’s series and we’re sure they’ll do brilliantly.

The first episode of the season airs on Sunday, October 27 at 6.30pm.
