Bank of Ireland reached out to local businesses and community groups to join them in making the event momentous in their attempt to break world records. The event was held on Bedford Row and refreshments were served in the Workbench area on 125 O’Connell Street. Multiple Bank of Ireland branches throughout Limerick took part in the event including Dooradoyle and the student branch on the University of Limerick campus who were joined by Munster Rugby Players. 

The registration process on December 15 began at 8am and as the a Guinness World Record criteria is so strict, everyone had to be registered in order for their participation to count. This therefore required participants who wanted to join in the fun on this occasion to be there 45 minutes beforehand. Bank of Ireland are now waiting on response to hear if the people of limerick have officially broken world records.
