Our Event is a sports fundraising event aimed at people in local sports clubs from home and abroad both present and past members. We will attempt to break the world record for the largest three legged race across multiple venues at the same time.
The current world record stands at 930 pairs achieved by the National Family week (UK) across 18 different venues in 2010. Our team from the Cootehill Celtic GAA- Hurling subcommittee is currently organising this event with multiple sports clubs around the country and we hope to sell this event as one where past members of local sports clubs will be invited to return home to visit their local clubs and participate in this fundraising activity.
The event will help raise much needed funds for every club that participates and we hope it will enable visitors from abroad to reconnect with their local club. Invitations have already been made to former members of our own club and we expect other participating clubs to follow suit in reconnecting with past members from abroad.
We would be grateful if we can become a part of The Gathering Ireland and we would do our best to promote Ireland to our friends, family and past members abroad.
