A Clare family will be competing in the final of a popular RTÉ television series next weekend.
The McCarthy’s from Inagh qualified for the final of Ireland’s Fittest Family on Sunday evening’s show. They are the first family from the Banner County to ever compete in the show and will hope to take home the €15,000 cash prize in next weekend’s final.
Patricia, Jason, David and Aidan McCarthy have been excellent on the series to date impressing in every single one of the challenges undertaken. They are one of the few families to have avoided the eliminator on every episode they have appeared on.
There is a strong Clare connection to the show with Davy Fitzgerald and James Sexton responsible for creating the programme which has become one of the most popular in the country.
Former Republic of Ireland soccer international Stephen Hunt is the coach to the McCarthy’s as they hope to bring the title of Ireland’s Fittest Family back to Co Clare.
