"I've always had an interest in the gym and then I joined 'Strength Shed' and everyone was so supportive. The most supportive people that I've ever met in my life are from that gym. They all wanted me to compete. They actually said I would be banned from the gym if I didn't compete," laughed Conor.

"My coach Daniel McCarville from Smithborough who owns the gym that I train at. It is unbelievable. It's the best gym I've ever seen in terms of people and equipment, Daniel is an exceptional coach as well and I wouldn't of been able to do this without him."
