HOPES of Clare winners on Ireland’s Fittest Family will have to wait another year.
On Sunday, the Kulczynski family from Clarecastle exited the popular RTÉ show at the semi-final stage.
Mentored by Derval O’Rourke, the athletic clan found the going tough in the 100m trek through an energy-sapping bog.
This led to them ending up in the eliminator where the Mahoney family and Sixmilebridge’s Davy Fitzgerald secured a better time to send them out of the competition.
Although they admitted to being gutted, appearing on the eighth season of Ireland’s Fittest Family was described as an amazing experience by the Kulczynskis.
Leroy, Nicola, Sabian and Luca left their mark on viewers throughout the series notching impressive times on various challenges while 15 year old Luca recorded the third best time for the hanging tough challenge in the show’s history.
