GAA fans have gathered in Dublin to welcome home the 2015 All Ireland Football Champions.

"Keep in mind Dublin Bus will be operating diversions to a number of routes around O’Connell Street and full details are found on their website.

"With regards to the Luas red line, services are expected to run between the Point and the Tallaght stops throughout the evening, however some delays can be expected."
