Congratulations to Liam Rafferty, one of our Senior Men who played in the ‘Marathon Match’ 24 hour Gaelic football game in aid of Cancer Focus Northern Ireland and Michaela Foundation on 7th/8th January in Garvaghey Centre – Home of Tyrone GAA. Along with 41 other players from across Ireland he played for 24 hours in order to break the world record for the longest Gaelic football game.
