Coolmine RFC

In order to mark their end of season awards and give the large attendance something to cheer, Coolmine RFC organised an attempt on the world record for the number of back passes. The target was 280 passes and the participants were set up with military precision by club official, Kevin McNally. Approximately 40 players of various ages were aligned in a zig-zag formation and on completion of each set of passes the last man ferried the ball back to the start and off they went again. Thankfully for all concerned the attempt went without hitches despite a very strong wind and their final tally of 283 passes has been submitted to Guinness World Records for ratification.
