Ireland’s Fittest Family finalists, The Mahers, were the worthy recipient of ‘Sports Star(s) of the Month’ as they picked up their award in Property Partners Buggy.
The award honours outstanding individuals in local sport on a monthly basis presented by Tommy Buggy in partnership with LaoisToday.
The Killeshin family picked up their award after they had a brilliant run on Ireland’s Fittest Family last month getting all the way to the final before a series of unfortunate events sent them home.
Upon receiving the award, Maeve Maher said: “We’re delighted. It’s nice to be recognized by the county because you do it for Laois. It’s nice to be recognized by your local area.”
“We got a lot of support. Everyone was texting us wishing us good luck.”
The youngest of the Mahers, Cara, said: “It was really nice to for the family and to get the award as a family.”
Dad, Nicholas, and eldest of the Maher children, Fionn, agreed that the award was a great honour to receive having done so well in the contest.
The Mahers made it all the way to the Ireland’s Fittest Family final in Croke Park and gave us brilliant entertainment over the series so it was only fitting they were the worthy recipients of the award!
