Video: Dublin and Donegal GAA fans pay special tribute to victims of the Buncrana tragedy
Dublin and Donegal fans paid a special tribute to the five victims of last weekend's Buncrana tragedy during their Division One clash at Croke Park tonight.
Sean McGrotty, 46, died along with his two sons Mark, 12, and Evan, eight, their grandmother Ruth Daniels, 57, and her 14-year-old daughter Jodie Lee Daniels.
The only survivor was Mr McGrotty's four-month-old baby girl Rionaghac-Ann.
Hero rescuer Davitt Walsh swam out into Buncrana harbour in north Co Donegal on Sunday night in an effort to reach the six people trapped in a car that had slid off the slipway into Lough Swilly.
Mr McGrotty handed him his baby out the broken driver's side window just moments before the Audi Q7 sank.
Dublin GAA fans had suggested that five minutes into tonight's game that the crowd observes a minute's applause for the five victims of the tragic accident.
It was impeccably observed by those at GAA HQ. Watch below:
