So far, the Killeshin family have put up a great fight to get to the semi-final.

They secured their place in the semi-final after a grueling challenge in the quarter final which saw Fionn and Nicholas take on the Hell and Back course, through a bog and then swim to a raft.

It was then on to Devil’s Creek for a time-trial where Nicholas, Fionn, Cara and Maeve were thrust into action.

The two families with the slowest times had to face the eliminator against the Mandiangus from Dublin.

bales of hay and then consisted of a 360 metre run, ice baths, a series of walls, cargo net and then back up the hay bales where they started.

The Laois representatives took the win to advance to the next round and they’ll be hoping to do the same tonight.

You can watch The Mahers take on their next challenge as it airs tonight (Sunday) on RTE 1 at 6:30pm.
