THOUSANDS OF DUBLIN fans turned out in force at Smithfield Plaza for the official homecoming party to honour Dublin’s four-in-a-row All-Ireland success.

The celebrations got underway earlier on Monday evening at an event which was hosted by Lord Mayor Nial Ring and Dublin City Council.

There were joyous scenes at what was a family-friendly occasion where RTÉ GAA correspondent Marty Morrissey joined Jim Gavin and the rest of his Dublin squad on stage to greet the fans.

Meanwhile, St Jude’s clubman Kevin McManamon treated the crowd to a rendition of the Dubliners classic ‘The Auld Triangle’ as Sam Maguire prepares to spend another winter in the capital.
