Galway welcomes home victorious Connacht team

Parking restrictions are in place as a major homecoming event in Galway welcomes home the victorious Connacht team.

The squad will be travelling through the city on an open-top bus as celebrations continue in the west, following Connacht's victory in the European Pro 12 Rugby final where they defeated Leinster 20-10 in yesterday's decider at Murryfield in Scotland. 
Later today the team will make their way from the Town Hall Theatre in Courthouse Square, via Saint Francis Street, Eglinton Street, Williamsgate Street and on to Eyre Square North, Eyre Square East, turning on to Forster Street and then via College Road to the home of Connacht Rugby at The Sportsground.
