The Cody Family from Kilkenny took part in Ireland's Fittest Family the show last year. We were so proud of Dunnamaggin LGFC members Debbie and Emily Cody. Debbie plays with the Mothers & Others while Emily is on the adult squad. Younger brother Paddy Cody stole viewers' hearts and if there was a Man of the Match it'd be Paddy for Ireland's Fittest Family Season 8. This year, the call is out again to see if there's another Kilkenny family that could go further than the Codys and take home the title. Ireland’s Fittest Family 2021 – Applications Open!
