VIDEO: Watch a dizzying parachute jump into Croke Park

An amazing video of last Saturday’s parachute jump into Croke Park from the jumper’s point of view has been posted online.

The dizzying footage shows the jumper's descent from the sky above Dublin city into Croke Park ahead of the Penn State and University of Central Florida college football game.

Within just two minutes he landed in the middle of the stadium, filled with around 20,000 American football fans.

He was the second parachutist to attempt the jump - the first missed the stadium and ended up on some train tracks behind Hill 16.
