Fans of Dublin and Donegal paid tribute to the family who tragically drowned in Buncrana last week in Croke Park on Saturday night.

Sean McGrotty (46) died in the incident, alongside his two sons Mark (12) and Evan (8), his mother-in-law Ruth Daniels (57) and her daughter Jodie Lee Daniels (14). The only survivor was four-month-old Rionaghac-Ann who was saved after her father passed her through the driver side window to Davitt Walsh before the car submerged.

The tribute to the family, which had been proposed by the Dublin Supporters Club on Facebook, was observed by both sets of fans as during the fifth minute of the game, they stood and gave a round of applause and mark the passing of the members of the McGrotty and Daniels families. 

Elsewhere, a campaign to raise money in memory of the five people who died in the tragic accident has raised almost €90,000
