Operation Transformation returns to our screens tomorrow night (Wednesday January 4), viewers will once again follow five inspiring people from across the country as they take on a health and wellness plan with the aim of resetting and kick-starting a new chapter in their lives.
One of the five leaders is Andrea Daly.
Originally from Arklow, 38-year-old Andrea Daly now lives in Portlaoise, Co. Laois, with her husband Joe and their three children Alex, Ryan, and Macy. Their eldest son, Dylan, was born in 2005 with Cerebral Palsy. Following Dylan’s birth Andrea and Joe, who were in their early 20s at the time, became his full-time carers.
Sadly, in January 2019, at the age of 13, Dylan passed away. The loss of Dylan has left a huge void in all of their lives. The time has come for Andrea to go on an adventure of discovery – not only for herself but for her family too, and she knows Dylan will be with her every step of the way.
Speaking on becoming a Leader, Andrea said: “My journey on Operation Transformation, I look forward to getting healthy and being happy in my own body. I feel this is my year and looking forward to the next eight weeks and seeing what the next months and year brings.”
Operation Transformation airs Wednesday 4th January at 21:30 on RTÉ One and RTÉ Player.
