FOLLOWING THEIR four-in-a-row All-Ireland success, the Dublin footballers continued their celebrations by bringing the Sam Maguire trophy to the children’s hospitals in the capital on Monday.

Jim Gavin’s charges were in good spirits as they came to see the patients and staff in the Crumlin Children’s Hospital and Temple Street after defeating Tyrone on Sunday to win another All-Ireland SFC title.

Have a look at some of the heart-warming scenes from their visit today, starting with their trip to Crumlin:
