In pictures: GAA stars turn out to remember Michaela McAreavey

All-Ireland champions Donegal faced an Ulster selection in the challenge match at Casement Park last night.

CASEMENT PARK LAST night hosted a festival of football as the GAA paid tribute to Michaela McAreavey.

A night to remember the 27-year-old, who died tragically while on her honeymoon with husband John in Mauritius last year, saw All-Ireland SFC winners Donegal take on an Ulster selection in a charity match at the Belfast ground.

The game was organised to raise funds for the Michaela Foundation with limited edition jerseys available to buy.

Michaela’s father and Tyrone senior football manager Micky was among the 18,000-strong crowd as Ulster won 2-12 to 1-12.
