Thousands of loyal Dublin fans packed O'Connell Street yesterday evening for the official homecoming of the 2015 All-Ireland champions and were treated to the singing skills of super-sub Kevin McManamon.

Dublin forward Dean Rock was chosen to perform a song, and belted out ‘500 Miles’ by The Proclaimers to the delight of the crowd, albeit with a somewhat hoarse voice.

The stalwart music performer of the team Kevin McManamon was up next, and delivered a superb version of Van Morrison’s ‘Brown Eyed Girl’, with the help of Ann Grimes, who became a viral hit with her “Ah Here. Leave it Out” video.
