Croke Park applauds Heaney at the All-Ireland football semi-final.

Two days after Heaney's death, the All-Ireland senior football semi-final is held at Croke Park. Just before the match between Dublin and Kerry, a moment's silence is called to mark the passing of former Kerry All-Ireland winner Ray Prendiville, Irish-language author and musician Maidhc Dainín Ó Sé and Seamus Heaney. The packed stadium stands and applauds the Nobel laureate, described here as "one of our greatest literary icons" who also played under-age football for Castledawson in Derry.
