Watch: Beautiful moment as Ireland legend Paul McGrath realises he is centre of attention on giant screen in Aviva

As Ireland fans waved goodbye to one legend last night, there was a magical moment in the second half when Paul McGrath appeared on the giant screens in the Aviva Stadium.

There was a somewhat sombre atmosphere around the D4 venue as Keane bagged a stunning farewell goal in a 4-0 win over Oman.

Keane stole the show for most of the night and delivered an emotional speech after the game but the other standout moment was undoubtedly when the cameras panned to an oblivious Paul McGrath.

The crowd erupted in adulation for one of their heroes and a chant of 'Ooh Ah Paul McGrath' rang around the stands but it was only after a few seconds that Mcgrath realised what all the commotion was about. McGrath raised his hand to acknowledge the crowd in what was a memorable moment in Lansdowne Road.
