Watch: Glenavon given rousing reception in Lurgan after Irish Cup triumph

Glenavon were given a rousing reception as they brought the Irish Cup back to Lurgan on Saturday.

The Mourneview club won their second Irish Cup in three seasons and their seventh in their history after a 2-0 win over Linfield.

The team coach was swarmed with overjoyed supporters on Saturday evening to welcome the players home.

Goals from Kevin Braniff and Andy Hall either side of the break secured the cup win at Windsor Park.

Glenavon dedicated their victory to former player Mark Farren who died of a brain turmour.

Ahead of their date with destiny, there were incredible scenes in Lurgan as the supporters gave the team a send-off to Windsor.

Scores of fans lined the Tandragee Road as the team bus - slowly - inched its way along before heading off to the city for the Lurgan Blues' clash against Linfield.
