The largest human daffodil record returns to Ireland.

Laura writes:

“Pupils from St Finian’s National School in Newcastle, Co Dublin, fill the school yard as the largest human daffodil this afternoon to raise money for Cancer research as part of the nationwide Daffodil Day. The fundraiser was instigated by one of the pupils – Fiachra Mooney (5th class), whose mother Mary just got the all clear from Breast Cancer on Wednesday past.”
