Largest Ever Gathering of All-Ireland Winning Captains for Pieta House

For the first time in the history of the GAA, all 100 surviving All-Ireland winning captains in hurling and football have been invited to come together in a unique event in aid of Pieta House. Nearly 70 have already confirmed that they will attend what is to be the greatest ever gathering of GAA legends from all over Ireland – going all the way back to the Meath captain of 1949, Brian Smith.


They will all take part in the final leg of 100K Steps for Cormac, a remarkable three-day fundraising walk throughout County Galway that’s taking place from August 28th – 30th. It’s being organised in memory of Cormac Connolly, nephew of Joe Connolly, the All Ireland-winning Galway hurling captain of 1980.


Cormac died of an inoperable brain tumour three years ago at the young age of 24. Knowing the pain and devastation of losing a son and brother, Cormac’s family were determined to celebrate his memory by organising a large-scale fundraising event for a charity that saves lives. They’re aiming to raise €100,000 for Pieta House.
