Kilkenny have won the All-Ireland hurling championship 36 times but there was a very new element to their homecoming at Nowlan Park yesterday.
Whether it is the result of a lost bet or someone getting caught up in the euphoria of the occasion, a man decided to doff his clothes and streak in front of thousands of Cats' fans.
The gentleman in question was wrestled to the ground by gardai and one used their top to create a makeshift nappy for the streaker before he was led off.
He kept his socks on throughout the incident.
Gardai told Independent.ie that a man was arrested in relation to a Public Order Incident at approximately 6.45pm in the park yesterday.
Brian Cody's men received a heroes welcome at the home of hurling in Kilkenny after defeating Galway by 1-22 to 1-18 in Sunday's final.
