Call for participation from the fittest school in Ireland


For the second year in a row, a call has gone out to schools across the country to find The fittest school in Ireland. The challenge comes from the Irish Olympians, sprinter Phil Healy and fellow athlete David Gillickwho partnered with Fyffes for the project.

Coupled with monthly and one-off awards, a successful school will have the distinction of being chosen as ‘Ireland’s Fittest School 2023’, the prize for which will be a visit from Healy and Gillick and €5,000 worth of sports equipment.

Entry for the competition, which runs until March 31, can now be made online at, with the grand prize winner due to be announced in April.

Last year, North Donegal Primary School, Scoil Na Croise Naofa, Dunfanaghy fought off fierce competition from the large number of competitors to be crowned the overall winner.

The start of the competition coincides with the resumption this month of the Fyffes children’s fitness program of live school visits after a two-year break during Covid. Some 7,500 pupils from schools across Ireland, North and South, will take part in an interactive Fit Squad session by next March.
