Donncha O'Callaghan will be coaching one of Ireland's fittest families this summer

He replaces his former Munster team-mate Alan Quinlan on the popular RTÉ show.

FORMER IRELAND INTERNATIONAL Donncha O’Callaghan will take time out of his busy pre-season schedule to join the coaching line-up for RTÉ’s ‘Ireland’s Fittest Family.’

O’Callaghan, who has signed on to play into next season with Worcester Warriors, will replace his former Munster team-mate Alan Quinlan as a coach for the fifth series of the programme.

The 38-year-old will join Davy Fitzgerald and fellow Cork natives Derval O’Rourke and Anna Geary for the show which will see 12 families compete against each other for the coveted title and prize fund of €15,000.

“After watching it at home for years I’m dying to get stuck into Ireland’s Fittest Family,” O’Callaghan said, ‘and personally I can’t think of a better way to spend a summer than winding-up Davy Fitz.”

O’Callaghan was named Worcester’s player of the year last season and the 2017/18 campaign will be the evergreen second row’s 17th as a professional.
