The Dublin team woke up as GAA football champions this morning after celebrating in the Gibson Hotel last night – but they didn’t waste much time before heading off to share Sam Maguire glory with some sick kids in Crumlin Children’s Hospital.

The children were clearly delighted to receive a visit from the GAA superstars as they brought Sam along so they could pose for pictures with the famous trophy.

And it looked as though the Dubs themselves got as much of a kick out of the visit as the kids did, and they spent ages signing autographs and posing for selfies with the children.
