Thousands of supporters turned out on O'Connell Street for a special event to honour the victorious Dublin team after their win over Kerry in Sunday's All-Ireland SFC final. 

The event, hosted by Lord Mayor Críona Ní Dhálai, saw the Sam Maguire paraded in the city before heading out to Parnells GAA club, the club of team captain Stephen Cluxton.

Earlier in the day, Sam Maguire visited Crumlin and Temple Street Children's Hospitals on what is his traditional trip before the victory parade on the capital's main thoroughfare.

Dublin lifted their 25th All-Ireland crown with a 0-12 to 0-09 victory over Kerry at Croke Park in a match that had a peak audience of 1.08 million viewers on RTÉ2. It was the most-watched programme on Irish television this year.   

Homecoming receptions also took place for the new All-Ireland minor football champions and the defeated senior finalists in the Kingdom. Thousands of people lined the streets of Tralee to welcome home the two teams.

Senior team manager Eamonn Fitzmaurice described his side's defeat to Dublin as "very raw" and said he felt his team hadn't done themselves justice in Croke Park. Earlier a reception took place in Rathmore, while another was planned for Killarney.
