Smithfield to host homecoming for the victorious Boys in Blue

Following a historic three-in-a-row All-Ireland victory from the Boys in Blue at Croke Park yesterday, it's safe to say that an awful lot of Dublin GAA fans are waking up with sore heads this morning.

But, the party isn't over yet.

Dub supporters will today have the chance to celebrate with the winning team as they descend on Smithfield square for a special homecoming from 6.30pm this evening.

Lord Mayor Mícheál Mac Donncha says there's plenty of room for everyone to enjoy the festivities.

"(Smithfield is) a big open-air space with plenty of room for everybody and we'll be greeting the squad after I host a reception at the Mansion House. We look forward to a huge celebration for the 3-in-a-row Dubs."

This is a family-friendly and alcohol-free event and Dublin City Council have asked those who intend on travelling to the homecoming to use public transport.

Commuters should note that the Smithfield Luas stop may be closed from 6pm to 8pm, though the Four Courts and Museum stops will still be in use.

Supporters can gain access to event from North King Street, Friary Avenue and Thundercut Alley.

Let's hope those jerseys aren't too wrecked from yesterday's shenanigans.
