The final of the Biggest Loser was held in the Monageer Tavern on Saturday the 5th March. After all was weighed the winning team of Ballycarrigeen led by Niall O Loughlin was announced with Declan Kelly leading his team in to second position. A total of 1600 kg in total was lost. Well done to Niall and all his team mates.
Also on the night Josephine O Dowd won the individual weight loss by beating 42 others who weighed in at the start. Well done Josephine.
Also thanks to all the other leaders without them the show would not go on. Also thanks to the landowners for the use of the land for the bog run, Jim & Josie Gahan, Ted Nolan and Danny Murphy, to all the drivers, stewards, water ladies, tea and sandwich makers, photographers, Eithne and Daire Turner for the use of their premises, Seamus and Mary Canavan for the use of their premises and all the people who supported their leaders. Without all of you the Biggest Loser would not happen.
We now have a year to prepare for next year and any new ideas would be welcome. Remember we will be looking for leaders next December again and if you fancy yourself as the Biggest Loser and would like to lead your townsland to Glory, let us know.
