DUBLIN footballer Philly McMahon delighted these excited kids when he turned up at SuperValu in the capital's Northside Shopping Centre to take part in a meet and greet with children from O'Tooles GAA Club.

Philly also presented the club with sports kits as part of the SuperValu Kits for Kids initiative.

SuperValu is the proud longstanding sponsor of the All-Ireland Football Championship.

The Irish supermarket chain is continuing to inspire the future generation of GAA stars by awarding juvenile O'Neills kits, worth over €360,000, to more than 400 clubs around the country.

The Ballymun Kickhams star is also hoping Dublin can overcome Kerry this Sunday in the All-Ireland semi-final, to set up a grandstand finish against Mayo on the third Sunday in September.
