Kilkenny's All-Ireland champs met Henry Shefflin at Crumlin Children's Hospital today

The O’Duffy Cup was brought in for a visit.

THE KILKENNY CAMOGIE team are celebrating a first All-Ireland senior title in 22 years today after getting the better of Cork yesterday.

The county’s intermediate side also tasted All-Ireland glory and there’ll be two trophies on display for their homecoming tonight.

But before heading to Noreside, they brought the O’Duffy Cup with them to Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital in Crumlin this morning.

And there was one famous Kilkenny hurling figure there to meet them.
