Inspired by RTE's Operation Transformation, 288 people from the Grange area took to the gym and diets to lose an incredible 169 stone.

The participants gathered in Barry's of Grange to celebrate their remarkable achievement. Various winners were feted.

Over six weeks the group stuck to a strict fitness and diet regime.

They met every Saturday for a 5k walk and during the week underwent circuit training or spinning classes organised by personal trainer, Gavin Gilsenan.

There was a weigh-in every Thursday night at the North Sligo Sports Complex.

Proceeds from the Grange Operation Transformation went to local soccer club, Ben Bulben FC and to the local branch of the St Vincent De Paul Society.
