Dubs homecoming to take place this evening


Dublin fans will get their chance to celebrate with the all conquering Dublin Senior Football team as All Ireland Champions 2017.

The Boys in Blue completed an historic hat-trick of All-Ireland wins yesterday with a one point victory over Mayo in one of the greatest All Ireland Football Finals of all time.

Dublin City Council will host the homecoming for the team, backroom staff, Dublin county board and the ever loyal fans.

Access to the event is from North King Street, Friary Avenue and Thundercut Alley.

Those attending are advised to obey the event signage and stewards instructions. An access map is available here.

The council is asking people to use public transport when travelling to and from the event, which is a family-friendly alcohol-free event.

Fans should note that the Smithfield Luas Stop may be closed between 6pm and 8pm. The Four Courts and Museum stops will remain open during this time.

Announcing the homecoming plans following the final whistle yesterday Lord Mayor of Dublin Micheál Mac Donncha said:

It is with great pleasure that I will welcome the victorious Dublin Senior Football team, on the occasion of their All Ireland win, to greet their fans in Smithfield tomorrow evening.

“This historic three in a row winning run is a marvellous achievement from one of the best county teams we have ever seen.

“My commiserations must go to the brave and talented Mayo team.

“I hope that as many Dubs fans as possible make their way to Smithfield Plaza tomorrow to welcome and congratulate our heroic team.  Cuirfidh pobal Bhaile Átha Cliath fáilte ollmhór dár laochra tar éis an bua stairiúl seo”
