Dublin's three-in-a-row heroes will pain the town blue when they celebrate with their army of fans this evening.

Jim Gavin, his backroom team and the players will arrive in Smithfield Plaza at 6.30 for a special event hosted by Ardmhéara Mícheál MacDonncha and Dublin City Council.

Access to the Smithfield Plaza is from North King Street, Friary Avenue and Thundercut Alley. Those attending are advised to obey the event signage and stewards instructions. Please view access map here

Dublin City Council is asking people to use public transport when travelling to and from the event, which is a family-friendly alcohol-free occasion. Fans should note that the Smithfield Luas Stop may be closed between 6pm and 8pm. The Four Courts and Museum stops will remain open during this time. 

Ardmhéara Mícheál Mac Donncha said: "It is with great pleasure that I will welcome the victorious Dublin Senior Football team, on the occasion of their All Ireland win, to greet their fans in Smithfield tomorrow evening.

"This historic three in a row winning run is a marvellous achievement from one of the best county teams we have ever seen. My commiserations must go to the brave and talented Mayo team.  I hope that as many Dubs fans as possible make their way to Smithfield Plaza tomorrow to welcome and congratulate our heroic team. Cuirfidh pobal Bhaile Átha Cliath fáilte ollmhór dár laochra tar éis an bua stairiúl seo."
