Back in The Town! Great scenes last night as league and cup double winners land home

The 2018 Champ-Champs were welcomed by a big crowd in Dundalk.

STEPHEN KENNY’S DUNDALK secured a historic double at the Aviva Stadium on Sunday as they added the FAI Cup to their 2018 haul.

The rivalry with Cork City was renewed once again, with the Lilywhites coming out on top as 30,412 fans watched on and they sealed their second double in four years.

And on Monday night, the champions arrived back in The Town in style to a huge turnout at the Market Square.

Here’s a look back on some of the best pictures, videos and tweets from the night — and an interesting rendition of Three Little Birds, courtesy of goalkeeper Gary Rogers.
