A private celebration to mark the achievement of the victorious Dublin senior ladies Gaelic football team will be held in City Hall on Dame Street on Tuesday night.

The reception, which takes place from 7.30pm and is hosted by Lord Mayor of Dublin Míchaél Mac Donncha, is by invitation only.

The event is being held on Tuesday because of a separate pre-planned function arranged for the players on Monday night.

Mr Mac Donncha said: “It is fitting that the city should acknowledge their great achievement, they have earned the name of champions by a wonderful display of Gaelic football at its best.

“Once more my commiserations go to a talented Mayo team who fought the good fight but were not victorious on this occasion.

“I congratulate everyone who took part in the Championship and wish you all every success in the coming season.”
