They’ve always been the drivers of athletics in Ballyroan.”Mary also said why families like the McDonalds deserve to do so well in a national competition such as this.“They’re very hard workers, they’re farming people and they’re a very unassuming family. They don’t court the publicity but they respect it when they get it.“They really are a very, very solid family and we’re all rooting for them.”The McDonalds can be seen in action in the final of Ireland’s Fittest Family on Sunday, December 16 on RTÉ One at 6.30pm.SEE ALSO – Laois community celebrating their past in new bookcenter_img WhatsApp WhatsApp New Arles road opens but disquiet over who was invited to official opening Community Facebook Pinterest Council Twitter TAGSIreland’s Fittest FamilyMcDonalds By Siun Lennon – 13th December 2018 last_img read more
