Killarney clinches world record for walking in welly boots (VIDEO)

Over 3,000 people turned out for the Killarney Welly Walk on May 11.

Over 3,000 people wearing welly boots strutted their way towards breaking a world record this weekend in Killarney, Co. Kerry.

Nothing – especially not a little bit of rain – was going to hold them back.

The World Welly Run, organized by the Glenflesk GAA club, drew over 3,000 participants in an array of rain boots for a 1km walk.

The previous record of 1,976 was set last year by the people of Ketchikan, Alaska.
