The Ireland Provincial Qualifier proved to be a very successful competition with 15 competitors looking to secure their top 12 spot at the All Ireland Final.  These competitors were from Ulster, Leinster, Connaught and Munster.  It was a warm sunny day in Galway and the expectations were high for all of the competitors as this was their first competition of the strength year.  The Provincial Qualifier was tied in with the Ireland Log Lifting Competition were Angelo Iannetta was looking to defend his Pound for Pound title.  The first event was the farmers walk and this saw Dean Kennedy win the event with a storming time of 18.75.  The second event was the log for maximum.  There were a number of stand out performances such as Kealan Harrington who only weighs 88kg, pressed 110kg above his head.  However, it was Ivan Gannon who lifted 145kg to secure the win.  The third event was the car deadlift for reps.  This saw Matthew McCoy get 13 Reps but it was Mr. Consistent, David Loughman who got 14 Reps to secure the win.  The fourth event was the 100kg log for reps.  This saw Dean Doyle and David Loughman get 6 reps each but it was Ivan Gannon who got 7 reps.  The last event was the 145kg stone for reps.  We had a number of big stone lifters like David Jones and Gavin Redmond.  However, it was Matthew McCoy and Dean Doyle who got 5 reps each to share the top spot.  Due to his consisency David Loughman won the qualifier and now he looks on to win his 1st major competition and become Ireland’s Strongest Man.  With the log falling on his foot Gavin Redmond was handed the Warrior Medal.  We will see you at the next ISA event near you!
