Extraordinary scenes in #Limerick this eve as the champions return. 40,000+ turnout at Gaelic Grounds alone. Huge boost for the city & county #LuimneachAbú #allirelandchampions pic.twitter.com/Y5v5WTLMno— Deric Ó hArtagáinTV3 (@deric_hartigan) August 20, 2018
Gardai estimate that between 80,000 and 90,000 people have turned up in Limerick tonight for the homecoming of the victorious Limerick senior hurling champions. Yes, you have read that correctly.— Damien Tiernan (@damienrte) August 20, 2018
You can't beat that winning feeling, hopefully the lads arrived relaxed and refreshed after their journey, although after yesterday's battle it will probably take a month to recover ;-)— Iarnród Éireann (@IrishRail) August 20, 2018
