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 national school, which educates approximately 80 pupils, was delighted to have the local legend put them through their paces on Wednesday 26 April.
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’s sponsorship of the hit television show Ireland’s Fittest Family.
Martina Hehir, principal, Cooraclare National School, 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,” Hehir added.
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 Conor Hayes, sales director, 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 – [were] 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.”
