The Script paid tribute to the Irish students who passed away last week during the Berkeley balcony tragedy by dedicating a song to their families and friends.
Mid-way through the bands set last night, the group paid their respects to the family members of the victims.
Lead guitarist Mark Sheehan said, “Ireland lost six of its sons and daughters during the week in California to a terrible tragedy.”
They group sang, “If You Can See Me Now”, telling the crowd that they initially wrote this song about their own grievances.
Lead singer of the group, Danny O’Donoghue appeared especially emotional during the performance, possibly because he himself is a past pupil of St. Mary’s College in Rathmines where two of the students, Eoghan Culligan and Niccolai Schuster, also attended.
