Tipperary – World Record For Largest Football Mosaic

Tipperary Ladies Gaelic Football Association have been successful in their attempt to break the World Record for the ‘Largest Football Mosaic’ at the Moyle Rovers GAA Grounds in Clonmel, Co Tipperary on Saturday July 6th last.

The world record attempt had the dual aim of promoting the sport in Tipperary while also raising funds towards the continued development of Ladies Football, throughout the county.

Local engineer, Mr Will McGarry, was responsible for designing the mosaic used, which formed & included the words ‘The Horse and Jockey,’ latter a local hotel here on the outskirts of Thurles & the generous team sponsor for the Tipperary Intermediate Ladies Football Team.

The final design was 22.2 metres wide and 3.4 metres high, covering approx 76 m².  The completed design consisted of 1530 footballs in Tipperary’s famous blue and gold colours.

There were over 300 people in attendance and both young and old got a chance to lay a ball and enjoy the great family occasion generated by this event.
