Congrats to all who worked so hard to make a Guinness World Record happen at Glenflesk GAA Club in Co Kerry. They have a lot going on down there and, for a small club, they punch well above their weight in competitions – incl. Irish Dancing and Traditional Irish Music.
I particularly enjoyed their ‘promotional‘ video clips
