We would requests all of our clubs members and friends to make an effort and come along to TCG Club in Greenford UB6 0NZ on Friday evening and be part of a unique opportunity at The Guinness world record attempt. Breaking this record would be a huge statement for the Irish community in Britain and abroad so please come along support it and and be a part of it. Thanks a million for your continued support.
