Irish Liverpool fans remember Hillsborough tragedy
At seven minutes past three yesterday, more than 2,000 Irish Liverpool football fans gathered at the Papal Cross in the Phoenix Park in Dublin to mark the Hillsborough tragedy and remember the 96 Liverpool supporters crushed to death on that awful day in 1989.
The event, called 'Ireland Walks With The 96', was organised by the YNWA Irish Reds supporters' club with support from other Liverpool supporters' clubs.
Today, the crucial Liverpool v Manchester City Premier League match will begin at 1.37pm as a mark of respect for those who died in the tragedy.
Tributes for those who died will continue with an annual memorial service and an event called the 'Celebration of the 96' to be held in Anfield this week.
