WATCH: Rousing applause breaks out at Croke Park for Irish tourists killed in Tunisia

Communities coming together in tragic times.

There was a minutes' silence held at Croke Park, this afternoon, before Meath and Westmeath did Leinster SFC semi-final battle.

Three Irish tourists - Lorna Carty [Meath] and husband and wife Laurence and Martina Hayes [Westmeath] were shot down in Sousse, Tunisia, in a terrorist attack, on Friday.

Meath GAA, who already paid a private tribute to Carty, were joined by the Westmeath panel and all fans in attendance at the ground - including fans of Dublin and Kildare - for the moment of silent reflection.

However, after a respectful period where a pin could be heard dropping, applause broke out in all corners of the ground. Spine-tingling moments.
