Finn Harps and Dundalk paid further tribute to the victims of the recent Creeslough tragedy, which claimed the lives of ten people in the small North Donegal Village last week.

Finn Harps are their local League of Ireland side, and were already praised for their match programme, which featured a beautiful picture on the front covers with the names of the victims, with all the proceeds from the programme going towards a victim's fund.

Wreaths were brought onto the pitch this evening by Dundalk captain Andy Boyle, Republic of Ireland U19 head coach Tom Mohan, and League of Ireland director Mark Scanlon.

A minute's silence was then held on the halfway line by players and officials, with local children lining the centre-circle, holding flags.

"The thoughts and prayers of myself, the staff and all the squad are with those affected.

"The people of Donegal have an incredible ability to come together in times of hardship and to look out for one another and that has really shone through in the past few days.”
