The GAA has announced that a moment’s silence will be held at all inter-county championship fixtures this weekend in memory of the six Irish students who tragically lost their lives in Berkeley this week.

Lorcán Miller, Olivia Burke, Eoghan Culligan, Niccolai Schuster, Ashley Donohoe and Eimear Walsh all died after their fourth storey balcony collapsed in an apartment complex in Kittredge Street, Berkeley in the early hours of Tuesday morning.

One of the deceased, Eoghan Culligan , was a member of Ballyboden St Endas in Dublin.

The GAA confirmed the move today.
