One man is celebrating winning three of the biggest bodybuilding competitions in Ireland and Britain over the last three weekends.

Bobby Enright of Peak Performance Academy, who lives in Kilcummin, won the Masters Over 25 age group titles in Derry and London before taking the gold medal in overall Irish competition in Dublin recently, the result of five years of hard work.

His previous performances in Derry and London saw the 40-year-old win the Over 25 category but the Irish event, run by Irish Natural Bodybuilding Federation, does not run competitions for different age groups.

“I was pitched in against all the young guys. The Irish Natural Bodybuilding Federation does not have a masters category, I won the Open Category,” he told the Killarney Advertiser. “To win gold was a dream come true. I have been trying to win this for five years, the best I managed before was bronze. It is like winning the All-Ireland.”

The Listowel native has been living in Killarney since 1998. He opened Peak Performance Academy in 2016, and one year after that he started competing in bodybuilding competitions.

"I sacrificed everything, I had no social events and had a strict diet for the last six months to get to 5% body fat to compete and win shows. My focus was training, dieting and running my business for the past year."

The successes of the Kerry, Munster and All-Ireland Fleadh’s were celebrated with Kilcummin CCÉ members, their families and friends in the clubhouse in Kilcummin on Sunday night.

The talent within the branch was clearly evident with a packed trophies table. Indeed some of the successes over the last number of months were replayed in a relaxed, jovial atmosphere that meant that all attending had a great night’s entertainment.

“We had demonstrations of winning sets across all age groups and then we moved onto the musicians who pulled out all the stops to entertain the large crowd, packed into the clubhouse,” Derek O’Leary, Kilcummin CCÉ PRO, told the Killarney Advertiser.

John Moriarty, who has recently retired from his role of Supervisor with Kilcummin Rural Development was acknowledged with a presentation to reflect the outstanding work that he has done to enhance and grow Kilcummin Comhaltas over his 25 years in his role, he added.

“Much thanks and praise was also offered to Mary, Adrian and Conor Moriarty, all involved in the progression of dancing and music within the Kilcummin branch. The music and entertainment continued with Helen Kerins and Denis Crowley late into the night. We’re looking forward to next year already!”
