A past pupil of St Patrick's Boys School,Eamonn O' Neill, has entered the Guinness World Record Book.
Eamonn, who was a pupil here in the school from 1992-1999, officially entered the world recognised record book for the fastest marathon runner dressed as a Sumo Wrestler!
Eamonn, who is currently living in Alberta, Canada, ran the marathon in full sumo gear, in an amazing time of 3hrs 44mins 15sec back in June 2014. The world record federation have just recently verified that he is indeed that fastest marathon runner in full sumo gear and have awarded him with his certificate of entry.
We at St Patrick's Boys School warmly congratulate Eamonn, and we are very rightly proud of this unique success story.
