32 counties, a whole lot of GAA stars and 5 charities benefit in this great sports travel video

It was all in aid of the Irish Cancer Society and the five official GAA charities of 2014.

JOHN MULLANE, CIARAN Kilkenny, Johnny Buckley, Aidan O’Shea, Noel McGrath, Walter Walsh and Brian Hurley are some of the GAA stars who featured in a unique fundraising video for the Irish Cancer Society and the five selected charities of the GAA in 2014.

Last October, eight lads from Carlow headed around Ireland in a camper van aiming to travel to all 32 counties in an attempt to raise funds.

They visited a landmark and met prominent GAA players in each county, and have now produced the brilliant final video documenting their travels.
