These Christmas homecomings at Dublin Airport will warm the cockles of your heart
Watch them here.

WE’VE SEEN GRANDMOTHERS meeting newborn granddaughters, surprise greetings, and even a proposal at Dublin Airport, but thousands more people will pass through the arrivals gate.

Dozens of family gather, some with signs and balloons, waiting for that relative they haven’t seen for months.

Ever few moments, there’s a cheer, and someone breaks from the crowd to embrance a luggage-laden relative.

Watch some of those of moments below:
