Horror as vile video put online; drownIng 2.
GAA fan Aidan Mullan, from Tattyreagh, Co Tyrone, drowned in the River Liffey in Dublin in the early hours of Sunday.
The 35-year-old was on a night out in the city with his brother and had earlier attended the Tyrone-Roscommon match in Croke Park on Saturday afternoon.
His death and the alleged circumstances surrounding it have sent shockwaves through his tight-knit community.
Footage of Aidan's body being taken from the water was posted on YouTube yesterday and taken down last night after complaints.
The harrowing scene was shot on a mobile phone and shows emergency crews battling to revive him.
Family friend Martin Carton described the actions of whoever shot the footage as "despicable".
He said: "It is deeply sickening on a personal and a human perspective that someone could do this.
"It is an absolutely despicable act and shows a total lack of respect for human life and the family's grief.
"Whoever did this is disgraceful and I utterly condemn them."
Last night complaints from family and friends flooded the site's message board.
One horrified relative said: "On behalf of close friends of the deceased and seeing the heartbreaking devastation the family are going through with this horrible tragedy, I urge you to remove this video."
