Utmost respect to Michael Darragh Mcauley and Bernard Brogan for this touching gesture

Pure class from the Dublin stars.

TWO OF DUBLIN’S All-Ireland winners have followed through on their promise to visit the resting place of the late Harris brothers with the Sam Maguire trophy.

Michael Darragh Mcauley and Bernard Brogan visited the grave of Alan and Stephen Harris at Glasnevin Cemetery earlier today to pay tribute to the brothers who lost their lives in a tragic accident in June.

Both were avid Dublin fans and Alan was regularly spotted at grounds around the country in his ‘Bluebird Dublin van’.

Dublin fans paid a touching tribute to the brothers, as well as the victims of the Berkeley balcony collapse, during the Leinster senior football championship win over Kildare at Croke Park shortly after their death.

In addition, Darragh Mcauley promised their sister, Lucy Harris, that they would bring Sam to Alan and Stephen if Dublin managed to get their hands on it.

And, true to his word, he and Brogan did just that this afternoon.
