On the 4th of April this year a group of second year sports management students from LIT will hold an event in memory of the late Anthony Foley. The aim of this event is to break the Guinness world record for the largest scrum in the world. This record attempt will take place in LIT’s main campus in Limerick. Just a couple of hundred metres from Thomond Park. The idea for the scrum came about shortly after Mr. Foley’s passing as it seemed a fitting way to commemorate him as well as raising money for charity. 3000 participants, is the objective for the scrum with the money that’s raised going to a charity of the Foley family’s choice. We are confident this record attempt will be a success with the help of you the public.
This attempt has been officially recognised and accepted by the Guinness book of world records and with adherence to its many rules and regulations, which each participant must read and adhere to on the day. We are confident of its authentic execution. Finally, we would like to thank the Foley family for their consideration and approval of this event. We hope to see everyone there on Tuesday the 4th of April 2017 to honour a legend, raise money for a great cause and make history.
