The biggest gathering of All-Ireland winning GAA captains ever assembled has helped raise around €100,000 for suicide awareness and prevention.

In all, 60 hurling and football captains who had led their county to All-Ireland participated in the walk in Galway at the weekend.

The three-day walk, '100,000 steps for Cormac', was in memory of Cormac Connolly, a member of the famed Connolly hurling family from Castlegar in Co Galway.

The walk started on Thursday in Portumna and featured all the Galway teams in hurling, football, camogie and ladies football who have won All-Ireland club titles.
