*Vegan Health & Fitness Panel with Luci Vidal, Ger Prendergast and Dr Ailis Brosnan / SUNDAY 29th
Gerard Prendergast is an Ultra Endurance Triathlete, a personal trainer and fitness coach from Ballymun, Dublin.

He tasked himself with completing 52 Ironman’s in 52 weeks for 2018. In May 2018 he also completed a 100 Mile run in 20 hours on a 550 meter loop.
