5 May 2023
Londis recently brought Ireland’s Fittest Family coach and hurling legend Davy Fitzgerald back to his roots to host a unique training session for 30 lucky students at Cooraclare National School in Kilrush, Co. Clare.
The school won the Londis sponsored competition to win a training day with the Clare All-Ireland winning player (1995 and 1997) and manager (2013) as part of Londis’ sponsorship of hit television show, Ireland’s Fittest Family. The national school, which houses approximately 80 pupils was delighted to have the local legend put them through their paces on Wednesday, 26 April.
It was a hugely successful and enjoyable occasion for the students and Davy, who commented: “It was great fun to team up with Londis and deliver the coaching session to the students. I hope it was as enjoyable for them as it was for me and that they benefitted from the training. Staying fit and enjoying your sport is very important and I was delighted with Londis when they approached me with this idea. It was wonderfully enjoyable.”
Londis has been sponsor to Ireland’s Fittest Family for the last four seasons and sales director, Conor Hayes, was delighted with the day: “It was great to have Davy involved on the day and that our local Clare Londis retailers, Kevin and Michelle McNamee was able to enjoy watching the session. Promoting health and fitness is very important to Londis, which is reflected in our sponsoring initiatives like Ireland’s Fittest Family.”
Cooraclare National School Principal, Martina Hehir said: “Memories were made in our school today that will last a lifetime. I want to thank Londis for organising this unique event and I want to thank Davy for sharing with our children his passion and expertise. It was an amazing success and undoubtably will be at the top of the memory bank of the experiences of their days spent in Cooraclare National School.”
