Sadly it was not to be for the Kildare family taking part in the final of the competition which was screened this evening. Dad Liam, son Darragh and daughters Niamh and Jean can be justly proud of their achievements in qualifying for the final and showing their true Lilywhite spirit, never giving up until the final whistle.
In the Eliminator which saw their journey end on the programme the team had to race up a gruelling mountain slope carrying sandbags and then putting them on a sledge and pulling them through a barbed-wire tunnel. Unfortunately for the Mileys as they began to pull back and catch the Cullen family their sledge caught losing them precious seconds. But the one thing the Mileys did show was true grit and a great team spirit.
Well done. As we said before you did Kildare proud.
