This year's All Ireland Championship has come to an end. 

Dublin have been crowned champions and will keep Sam Maguire in the capital once more.

It's the first time since the 1920's the Boys in Blue have won three in a row.

The match finished on a scoreline of 1-17 to 1-16. 

In the 47th minute of the match, both teams had a player sent off, Dublin player John Small received a second yellow while Mayo player Donal Vaughen got a straight red for an off the ball strike. 

There will be a homecoming tomorrow evening for all fans at 6.30pm in Smithfield Plaza.

Access to the Smithfield Plaza is from North King Street, Friary Avenue and Thundercut Alley.

Dublin City Council is asking people to use public transport when travelling to and from the event, which is a family-friendly alcohol-free event. 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.
