OUR SUPER hurlers who have already done us proud will be assured of a rousing welcome home at UPMC Nowlan Park on Monday from 4pm.

Kilkenny County Council invites members of the public to attend the homecoming where there will be music and other entertainment in a family-oriented event.  

The teams will make an open top bus journey from Kilkenny Castle at 7pm, down to Rose Inn Street, over John’s Bridge, and up John Street and the  Hebron Road,  finishing in O’Loughlin Road.

It is anticipated that the team will be on stage at approx 7.30pm.  

Entertainment will include a replay of the All-Ireland final on giant screens with live music by Drops of Green and The Kilkennys. 

Proceedings will close before 8.30pm.

In the interest of public safety, the county council, Kilkenny GAA and Gardai ask supporters to arrive early and to follow the directions of stewards. 

All public car parks in Kilkenny City will be open free of charge from 4pm.
