Heroes party on as reality of glory win hits home

Pat Gilroy's team deservedly partied into the night and right through today as they celebrated a magnificent victory.

There were heroes everywhere in the team especially match winner Stephen Cluxton, goal scorer Kevin McManamon and the brilliant Brogan brothers.

The week long party was in full swing at the Burlington today as the players, family and friends welcomed Sam home.

The win was all the sweeter as it came against the 'Auld Enemy' Kerry, who at one stage looked to have the game won, before our heroes secured their place in history.

Hero Michael Fitzsimons told the Herald today: "We still can't believe it, this morning. It's going to be a great week."
