CORK'S record breaking Rebelette footballers proudly brought the All-Ireland trophy back to Leeside for the eighth time in nine years.
More than 1,500 fans gathered on the South Mall as the Cork ladies showed off the Brendan Martin Cup after their win over Monaghan in Croke Park.
Coach Eamon Ryan (72) hailed "a very special group".
He said: "I couldn't be prouder for them. They worked so hard for this. The loyalty in this squad is unbelievable."
Other Cork squads that won national titles, including the U-14s, U-16s and U-21s, were invited along to share in the celebrations.
However, the party was tinged with sadness as midfield star Juliet Murphy (33) confirmed that she was retiring.
The Donoghmore star reversed her decision to quit the panel over the summer and helped kick-start Cork's season after a disappointing defeat to Kerry in the Munster championship.
Cork's Lord Mayor Cllr Catherine Clancy paid tribute to the Rebelettes for their courage in fighting back to take the 2013 title.
"You are an inspiration to everyone in Cork," she said.
It was also a special occasion for Bride Rovers' star Grace Kearney as she delivered an All-Ireland medal for her six-week-old nephew Dara Murphy.
It helped make up for the disappointment of Dara's uncle, Brian Murphy, missing out on an All-Ireland medal in the Rebels' gallant defeat to Clare on Saturday.
