The Ireland Women's National Team will be welcomed home from their 2023 FIFA Women's World Cup run at a special reception on Dublin's O'Connell Street, in front of the GPO, on Thursday, August 3 from 6:30 pm.
The welcome home reception for Ireland's Girls in Green will feature entertainment from Block Rockin’ Beats DJ Dec Pierce before the team takes to the stage to be welcomed by MC Dave Moore from Today FM.
“We’ve all enjoyed watching the Girls in Green do us proud in Australia,” said Lord Mayor of Dublin Daithí de Róiste.
“Now is our chance to tell them in person just how proud we are of them. I have no doubt their efforts will have inspired lots of girls and boys all over the city to try and be like them someday.
"So come along to O’Connell St on Thursday and let's give Vera and the squad a welcome home to remember!”
