Tony dances a jig to mark his triumph in the Grand National

JP McManus and top jockey AP McCoy kept the party going last night.

Mr McManus has been in celebratory form ever since 'Don't Push It' won the Aintree Grand National on Saturday with AP on board.

The partying continued in south Limerick as neighbours and friends of Mr McManus toasted the Grand National winner and owner at a function in the Staker Wallace GAA club.

Mr McManus is also to receive an official civic reception from the mayor of Limerick, Kevin Kiely.

Making a triumphant return home to Shannonside on Saturday evening, he splashed out thousands of euro on drinks for happy punters across Limerick city and county.

More than 300 drinkers in South's bar in the city were first to receive Mr McManus on Saturday.

The popular city pub -- already packed with jubilant Munster rugby fans -- erupted when Mr McManus and his family came through the doors.

"It is great, great," McManus said as he was mobbed by well-wishers following the victory for the 10/1 joint-favourite.

The celebrations continued later as Mr McManus made his way back home to his Martinstown Stud in south Limerick.
