Tears were shed in Murray’s on O’Connell Street watching this on the Sunday Game. Legends.
For me this was a beautiful moment for Mark and Martin which brought me to tears and I will never forget it !
Martin shedding tears like that in Croke Park on such a wonderful occasion with your son who followed in your footsteps is nothing to be ashamed or hurt about. Everyone is entitled to their moments and no doubt your late father was looking down on both you and Mark. I was in the Hogan Stand and I must agree it was a very emotional moment which I never will forget and to be honest I did shed a tear too.
Martin and Mark you’ve done us proud,a private moment but nice to see. Now we know I’am sure all GAA fans will say a wee prayer for you.Enjoy this time with your family and friends.
Good on you both, moments like that are special and to hear the story behind it makes it an iconic image of sport, community and family all rolled into one uniquley Irish experience.
That moment there sumed up the emotions that was going through the whole of Donegal.. Did it bring a tear to my eye, yes… You can’t make raw emotions like that up… TV Moment of the year.. Well done Mark..
Great moment and a credit to you both. Society needs alot more moments of men sharing their emotions in public, then maybe teenagers and young men will talk more openly of their feelings.I was delighted when I seen these images and I know they were private moments but they are what society needs.
what a moment it was exactly the way most of donegal felt
