Fyffes announces Ireland's Fittest School finalists

Posted on: 11 Apr 2024

Irish fruit importer Fyffes has unveiled the names of the top four schools who will progress to the live ‘grand final’ of this year’s competition to find Ireland’s Fittest School 2024.


They are: Ballyhass National School, Cork; Cliffoney National School, Sligo; Presentation Primary Clonmel, Tipperary and St. Mary’s Touraneena National School, Waterford.


Supported by Fyffes and tracked online, the purpose of the competition, launched last Autumn and now in its third year, is to promote the importance of exercise, fitness and healthy eating amongst young people.


Taking place in late May, the grand final will be hosted by three of Ireland’s best-known athletes – World Para Rowing champion, Katie O’Brien and Olympians, sprinters Phil Healy and David Gillick, and will see the four schools contest for a prize package which will include €8,000 worth of sports equipment and the title of ‘Ireland’s Fittest School 2024’.


Previous winners were Scoil Na Croise Naofa, Dunfanaghy (2022) and Gilson National School, Oldcastle (2023). Details at www.fyffesfitsquad.ie
