More than 6,000 boxing fans have lined Bray seafront to see local girl Katie Taylor secure a bronze at the Olympics on an open-air big screen.
The voice of broadcaster Jimmy Magee boomed out across the promenade as Taylor secured a terrific win over her British opponent Natasha Jonas.
Mary Morris travelled from Dundulk, Co Louth, on the train to be part of the celebrations.
"I knew it would be a great atmosphere here and I knew she was going to win and I wanted to be part of that," said the 58-year-old. "It was absolutely brilliant. We came out on the Dart and it was fantastic. There were queues of people coming out here."
Bray native Roisin Ni Dhubhda, 31, brought nephews Eoghan, Conall and Ruadhain Duddy out for the match. "There was a great atmosphere, it was great to see Bray doing it right and getting behind out our local girl," she said.
Men, women and children dressed in the colours of the tricolour chanted "Katie, Katie" in sync with fans in the ExCeL Arena.
But the celebrations were already well under way in the boxing camp after John Joe Nevin secured the first Olympic bronze medal for Team Ireland on Sunday night.
As Nevin and Taylor fight for silver later in the week, Paddy Barnes and Michael Conlon will box for bronze.
Bray Mayor Mick Glynn revealed the open-air party will move to the main street for Taylor's next match on Wednesday. And, if she makes Thursday's final, the country is invited to her housing estate in the Ballywaltrim area of the town.
"It's a relief to get the first one out from under the belt," said Mr Glynn. "I was nervous so I don't know show she was feeling. I've seen Katie fight in the local hotel say half a dozen times and she's fought against the champion of Denmark, the champion of Spain, and I've never seen her take so many hits... so it's a relief."
