The banner included the words "RIP Blato" and was hung from the Rosie Hackett Bridge near Dublin's Liberty hall.

The tribute in Dublin matched simlar tributes around Europe over recent days and it coincides with a Europa League play-off match between Hajduk Split FC and Everton in Liverpool on Thursday night.
