Children gathered from early morning for the attempt which saw children and adults take part in one massive hurling, football and camogie training session.There was huge excitement when Donegal GAA stars Rory Kavanagh, Kevin Rafferty and Frank McGlynn, fresh from their Late Late Show appearance, turned up with the Sam Maguire Cup.The players have been part of a team tour which has spent four days on a bus touring almost every town in Donegal ending in captain Michael Murphy’s parish club in Glenswilly on Thursday night.But children still can’t get enough of their heroes. Today they queued for more than three hours to have their picture taken with the cup and their homegrown idols.Organiser Alma Kavanagh, of St Eunans and sister of Donegal star Rory Kavanagh, said they are keeping their fingers crossed they have broken the record.“It was a terrific day and we’re juts hoping now we have done enough to break the record.“It doesn’t matter what happens though because sports, the GAA and the children are the real winners.“Hopefully we can do it again next year when the boys bring home the Sam Maguire cup once again,” she said. * With thanks to Tony Duffy for the pictures!MORE THAN 2,000 TURN UP TO SMASH WORLD RECORD AT GAA TRAINING SESSION was last modified: September 29th, 2012 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:donegalrecord attemptSt Eunanslast_img
