“We all know it could have been any of us at the airport or on that metro so let’s be thankful for everything we have and help anyone else who needs it. Thanks also to all our friends in the GAA world at home, in Europe and around the world who have been in touch — your support is much appreciated.

“These lunatics will not win; we will continue our lives in this city we love and which so many of us call home. Sport will continue to be a huge part of our lives and bring us closer together. Take care out there and be safe.”
