A Dublin City Councillor has called on the local authority to erect a big screen in Smithfield for next Sunday’s All-Ireland football final.

When the big screen was previously erected at the Dublin 7 location, there were disappointing turnouts due to wet weather, but Independent Councillor Mannix Flynn still thinks there is a need for it. 

He told The Herald: "A lot of people can't get into Croke Park, or the Mansion House, and even people who have very little interest in the GAA want to be part of this and the celebrations. That's what people are saying to me.
"You're going to have a vast amount of Kerry people who don't have a ticket, who want to be in the atmosphere in the city for this event. The Council should be announcing this and inviting everybody."
