The Liam Whelan bridge has been covered in football shirts overnight

A great response to the despicable graffiti daubed on the memorial to the victim of the Munich air disaster.

Yesterday we brought you the pictures of the terrible act of vandalism that occurred on the Liam Whelan bridge in Dublin yesterday. The bridge, in Cabra near Dalymount Park, carries a small plaque commemorating local man Liam Whelan, who was one of eight Manchester United players killed in the Munich air disaster in 1958.

Yesterday the message 'Munich b******' and 'LFC' was painted onto the bridge by vandals. Within hours, volunteers from Bohemians had begun to clear to clear the paint off the memorial and this morning, the bridge has been transformed as local football fans of various teams have covered the site in jerseys.

The picture, sent into us by Colm Humphries, is a much happier one to see.
