Details revealed for Dublin team's All-Ireland homecoming party
Dublin fans might want to keep this evening free and head to the city centre.
The Dublin Senior Football Team will gather in the city centre on Monday evening for a homecoming party following their triumphant win at Croke Park on Sunday.
The Boys In Blue beat Mickey Harte's Tyrone by six points to make it four titles in a row in front of a packed Croke Park on Sunday afternoon.
This is the county's 28th All-Ireland win, allowing them to become just the fourth team ever to win four All-Irelands in succession. They now begin their drive for five.
Lord Mayor of Dublin Nial Ring announced that the team will be going to Smithfield Square at 6.30pm on Monday evening.
"Four in a row is a magnificent achievement and is a fitting reward for the Dublin players, backroom staff and manager who have shown such commitment, dedication and professionalism in their quest for this rare honour."
"Dublin fans will get their chance to celebrate the four in a row victory with the Dublin Senior Football team as All Ireland Champions 2018," Dublin City Council said in a statement.
"Lord Mayor Nial Ring and Dublin City Council will host a special event for the team, backroom staff, Dublin County Board and True Blue fans on Monday, 3rd September at 6.30 p.m. in Smithfield Plaza.
"Access to the Smithfield Plaza is from North King Street, Friary Avenue and Thundercut Alley. Those attending are asked to follow the event signage and stewards’ instructions."
The council has asked people to use public transport when travelling to and from the event, which is both family-friendly and alcohol-free.
"Fans should note that the Smithfield Luas Stop may be closed between 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. The Luas stops at the Four Courts and Museum will remain open during this time," they concluded.
