GAA fans to pay a special tribute to Rescue 116 crew

THE promoters of the Mayo GAA 2017 Facepage page have called for a one minute's applause during next Sunday's Allianz National League game between Mayo and Cavan at Elvery's MacHale Park in respect to the Irish Coast Guard crew of Rescue 116.

A post on the popular fans' forum stated: “With the events on Monday still unfolding its still hard to wrap our heads around what happened just of our lovely coast.

“These four people (Dara Fitzpatrick, Ciaran Smith, Mark Duffy and Paul Ormsby) are no less than everyday heroes who risked their lives so people had another day.

“They deserve the highest of respect and a fitting tribute should apply on Sunday when we play Cavan.

“Could everyone applause on the 16th minute for rescue 116 to show they are in our thoughts and prayers.

"Please share this post so everyone knows what to do. RIP.”
