The WLC is a 12 week course with a unique approach to weight management and healthy lifestyle that is simple and amazingly effective. The first WLC opened in Millstreeet in March of this year. Since then over 50 people from the Duhallow/Rathmore area have achieved remarkable weight loss and overall health and wellness results.



Our “biggest losers” over the first 12 week challenge were:

3rd place Laura Kelleher lost 8.6% of her body weight

2nd place Maria Smyth lost 9.6% of her body weight

1st place Ailin Fitzgerald lost 9.8% of her body weight

As a group of 13 we lost a total of 137lbs and 691cm!

Kelleher get together – Thank You

As one of those who were involved in organising the Kelleher get-together in Millstreet on 24th August, I would like to say a belated thank you to everyone who joined us, and made us feel so welcome. I would particularly like to thank Sean Radley, the staff of the Walis Arms Hotel, and all the Kellehers. You were wonderful to us, and the Australian Kellehers thought you were fantastic. If that is a foretaste of what the Gathering is going to be like next year, it will be great. Thank you all very very much. Rosaleen Underwood
