Long wait, but Sam's back

IT'S been a long time coming -- but today the Sam Maguire was back home in Dublin.

The All Ireland-winning heroes kicked off the biggest party ever seen in the capital, after one of the greatest finals.

Tonight, the players will be presented to tens of thousands of fans at a civic reception on Merrion Square where the Sam Maguire cup will be reintroduced to the crowd after a 16-year wait.
