When the Notre Dame Fighting Irish triumphed in Columbus in winning their first national title since the early 2000s, a celebration ensued from Ohio to South Bend.

This was announced on the Notre Dame women’s basketball Twitter account after they were crowned national champs.

Notre Dame and South Bend came out en masse to celebrate their Fighting Irish when they returned from Columbus.

It’s so great to bring it home for Notre Dame. Just for everybody here who has supported me all these years. They’ve supported our team. They’re the best fans in the country.

Our fans are a big part of why we’re here. They come to every home game energetic so I think it was exciting to come back and greet them.
