GAA fans have been invited to attend the massive outdoor screening of the All-Ireland Minor and Senior Football Finals at Smithfield Plaza today.
The Lord Mayor (or Ardmhéara, as she prefers) has given the go ahead for the screening, and a similar event happened just two years ago when Dublin defeated Mayo.
In 2013, thousands of supporters turned out for the event, an tArdmhéara Críona Ní Dhálaigh said of this year's screening,
I know there are plenty of people who could not get a ticket for the match. So please come down to Smithfield Plaza and enjoy the atmosphere and hopefully a great final, on the big screen with your fellow Dubs and maybe some Kerry fans and Tipperary Minor fans [...] Dublin City Council is proud to be bringing this free family-friendly event to Smithfield and I hope we get a good crowd down to cheer on the boys in blue.
The event is intended for the whole family, and it will be alcohol-free. There will also be other entertainment on offer, from bouncy castles to strolling characters and face painting.
Dublin City Council is also advising people to use public transport to come to the city on the day, whether they are going to Croke Park or Smithfield Plaza. There is no special parking arrangement in place for the Smithfield event.
The screening will take place at Smithfield Plaza today from 1pm until 6pm and it will be free of charge.
