Noel and Liam Gallagher have been invited to take part in a record-breaking family gathering.

Organisers of the second Gallagher Global Gathering in Ireland have invited the brothers, who fell out when Oasis broke up in 2009, to the event in the hope they'll make up.

A spokesperson for the Gallagher Gathering told The Scotsman: “We are extending a special invitation to Noel and Liam Gallagher. We hope they will be interested because of the songwriting and musical aspects but, also because it’s a Gallagher family gathering."

They added: "We are having people from New Zealand and Australia and all over the world coming over for the gathering."

The 10-day event takes place between September 6-15 at Gortahork in west Donegal. It's the homeland of the Gallagher clan and aims to bring together tens of thousands of Gallaghers in an effort to break the world record for the largest number of people gathering with the same name.

Six years ago, 14,088 Gallaghers congregated in Letterkenny, also in County Donegal, and took the title from the Jones' of Wales. A similar event took place in County Clare in February, where people called Claire, Clair or Clare were invited to attend. In 2012, the world record for the largest gathering of people called Muhammad was set, with more than 20,000 Muhammads turning up.

Noel, meanwhile, recently poured cold water on persistent rumours of an Oasis reunion. When asked by Time Out Dubai if there would be a reunion in 2015 to mark the reunion of their 1995 album '(What's The Story?) Morning Glory', he said: "Look, it’s not going to happen in 2015 because the boys in the other band [Beady Eye] are all flat out busy, they’re making a record at the minute so they’re going to be on the road until 2015 you'd imagine.

"And I probably will have been coerced into doing something by then. I wish people would give it up – it's not going to happen, for no other reason than we’ve moved on. That’s not to say it won’t happen in 25 years time, or 20 years."
