Thousands of fans turn O'Connell Street blue for Dublin's Sam Maguire celebrations

The crowds braved the elements to give the All-Ireland winners a hero’s reception.

DUBLIN’S ALL-IRELAND winning celebrations continued in the capital this evening as thousands of fans gathered for the official homecoming parade.

Jim Gavin’s side edged past Kerry at Croke Park yesterday to win their 25th All-Ireland title and were honoured by Lord Mayor Críona Ní Dhálaigh at a reception in the Mansion House earlier.

They then headed across town to greet the large crowds on O’Connell Street.
