Garvaghey to host Marathon Charity GAA Match


Players from across the GAA landscape will try to create history this weekend as they aim to play in a 24-hour long game at Tyrone’s Garvaghey GAA Centre starting this Saturday January 7th at 11am and finishing on Sunday January 8th at 11am.

Bundoran senior player Diarmuid Mc Caughey is the only Donegal player involved in the event. Players from Tyrone, Derry and Fermanagh will also be lining out.

The ‘Marathon Match’ in partnership with O’Neill’s International Sports and Michaela Foundation will see two teams go head to head for the total of 24 hours.

The general public are encouraged to come along and watch the game which hopes to create a Guinness World Record for the longest game of Gaelic football.
