Éire Óg Greystones to host World Record Attempt

Have you always wanted to take part in a world record attempt? Well, now’s your chance. Eire Óg GAA club are hosting a World Record attempt on Saturday 20th September 2014.  The soloing relay will take place at the club grounds in Greystones with hope to raise money for the development of juvenile facilities in Eire Og. We are calling on all club members, families, friends, local residents and any individuals willing to help raise funds for the juvenile teams within our club. We want as many people as possible to get involved, so together we can create a world record through a soloing relay with a total distance of 42km (i.e. a full marathon). The event is open to all members of the community, to run or walk just one length of a pitch with a football or sliotar.

Juvenile Chairman Kevin Healy said “we have our biggest ever wave of young kids coming through our club right now, and we are short on space and training facilities. A skills wall will really assist in our kid’s development in hurling, camogie and football. This is a fun way to bring the whole community together and fundraise for the club at the same time. Everybody can take part in this event, from children to parents to grandparents. We will also have lots of other fun things to do on the day, including games, face painting, music, kids disco, etc.”

Eire Og Greystones have their club doors open to anyone who wants to get involved.

If you would like to take part or for more information check out www.eireoggreystones.com or contact us through our FB page https://www.facebook.com/pages/Eire-Og-Greystones-Juvenile . Sponsorship cards are available from Kevin Healy @ 0872393289 or any coaching member of the club
