Over 4 stone drop in 6 months

the academy kildare, barney o reilly, before and after,

Today I’m here to write about a huge success story for the Academy. It’s a story about a young man called Barney O’Reilly.

At his heaviest weight he was a whopping 20 stone!

This is a story about a very brave and inspirational man called Ronan O’Donnell who ran 141miles in 7 days in 53 degree heat in the Sahara desert! It’s called Marathon des Sables. That works out to be 6 marathons in 7 days through a desert. Crazy I know.
