Two Waterford families will take part in the quarter-final of one of Ireland’s toughest fitness competitions, Ireland’s Fittest Family, which will be broadcast on RTÉ.
Both Waterford families will be under the mentorship of Donncha O’Callaghan and the competition is due to heat up this week as the quarter-finals kick off in a brand-new location in Meath at Finnegan’s farm.
The farm is a fifth-generation potato farm in the heart of the Boyne Valley.
Waterford’s Bonnar family and Peters family will contest against Sonia O’Sullivan’s Byrnes family from Tipperary and Nina Carberry’s Murphy family from Carlow to battle for a place in the semi-final.
The Peters family felt that they didn’t perform their best in Season 10. After losing by only 3 seconds last season, they are back once again to prove to themselves that they are up for the competition, while with an All-Ireland winning hurler on the team, the Bonnars are ready to demonstrate their credentials and take on any challenge!
The Byrnes hail from Tipperary and with marathon and Ironman competitors amongst them they are keen to show their skills.
The Murphy family from Carlow is going all out to showcase their strengths, even giving up biscuits! From kayaking to ultimate frisbee, the Murphys are ready to prove themselves.
With just one team left in the game, Davy Fitz is on the benches until next week.
This season, the coaches are more competitive than ever and ready to train the fittest families in the country as they tackle some gruelling physical challenges.
Fresh from last year’s victory, Davy Fitzgerald is determined to make it two in a row this year. The other three coaches are aiming to prevent him from claiming another win, with newcomer Sonia O’Sullivan eager to leverage her Olympic credentials for a debut victory.
Ireland’s Fittest Family, Season 11, is a rollercoaster of excitement, determination, and unparalleled physical challenges.
Don’t miss a moment as families fight for glory and the coveted title of Ireland’s Fittest Family on RTÉ One and RTÉ Player, Sunday, November 26, at 6.30pm.
