Smithfield Plaza will host the Dublin team for their homecoming after their historic victory over Mayo.

The event, which is organised by Dublin City Council, will begin at 6.30pm.

Access to the Smithfield Plaza is from North King Street, Friary Avenue and Thundercut Alley.

Those attending are advised to obey the event signage and stewards’ instructions.

Dublin City Council is asking people to use public transport when travelling to and from the event, which is a family-friendly alcohol-free event.

The Smithfield Luas stop will be closed between 6pm and 8pm. The Four Courts and Museum stops will remain open during this time.

The Lord Mayor of Dublin Mícheál Mac Donncha congratulated the team and said he looked forward to welcoming them back.

“This historic three-in-a-row winning run is a marvellous achievement from one of the best county teams we have ever seen,” he said.

“My commiserations must go to the brave and talented Mayo team. I hope that as many Dubs fans as possible make their way to Smithfield Plaza tomorrow to welcome and congratulate our heroic team.”
