'Chaplins' miss out on record

THE weather played spoilsport with efforts to break the world record but still over 100 'Charlies' lined out in memory of their favourite comic.

The figure to beat for the greatest number of people dressed as Charlie Chaplin in the one place was 250 and although Waterville's effort fell well short, it was still a fun way to end a great festival weekend.

Among the Charlies was former Ireland rugby international Des Fitzgerald and his wife, Andrea, parents of Leinster and Ireland player Luke, who lined out as Chaplin's iconic Tramp complete with bowler hats and moustaches.
