The Kerry teams who won both the Minor and Senior 1980 All-Ireland Finals receive a rapturous welcome home in Killarney.

Kerry's Senior Football team who have been crowned All-Ireland champions for the third year in a row are welcomed back to the Kingdom, accompanied by the equally victorious Kerry Minor Football team. 

Inclement weather resulted in lower than usual numbers of supporters on Killarney's streets for the homecoming ceremony, but the cheering of the estimated seven thousand who are present more than make up for it as both the Minor and Senior teams are paraded through the town on the back of a lorry, preceded by a marching band.  

While many sports commentators maintain that the quality of football played this year was below par, the Senior Kerry emerged victorious with 1-9 over Roscommon's 1-6, even though  

Sunday's All-Ireland Final will not go down in the annals of Kerry GAA as a classic victory.

A Garda crackdown meant the traditional bonfires in the streets were absent this year, and the rain muted the celebrations somewhat, although  

Many post-mortems on the match were held indoors into the early hours of the morning.
