Achill whistle blowers enter the record books

Achill whistle blowers enter the record books: "They came, they saw and they whistled. A grand total of 1,055 people converged on Keel beach on Achill Island on Saturday afternoon last armed with nothing but their tin whistles and the notes in their heads of one of Ireland’s best known songs.
When they were finished they were nearly certain that they had entered the Guinness Book of Records for a gathering of the greatest number of tin whistle players playing the same tune. All that waits now is official confirmation from Guinness."
