Fans from both counties could be seen rising to their feet at the Athletic Grounds in Armagh to applaud at the 32 minute mark of the game to symbolise the 32 years of Natalie’s life.

A photo of Natalie was also shown on a large screen with a number for Crimestoppers, while spectators held up signs reading ‘Justice for Natalie’.

“It’s wonderful that Armagh are taking part in this act in honour of that family and that woman,” a TG4 commentator said.

Natalie’s brother Niall also Tweeted an image of a group of spectators with signs and t-shirts of his sister’s photo shortly before the match.

On Thursday a 32-year old man appeared in court charged in relation to Natalie’s murder.
