Tipperary's All-Ireland champions visit children's hospitals with Liam MacCarthy

One of the finest GAA traditions.

FRESH FROM CLIMBING the steps of the Hogan Stand and lifting the Liam MacCarthy Cup once again, Tipperary’s newly-crowned All-Ireland champions continued a fine GAA tradition by visiting Dublin’s children’s hospitals ahead of their journey home from the capital.

Manager Liam Sheedy, captain Seamus Callanan and the Premier side brought the coveted silverware to visit the kids, and spirits were high in both Crumlin Children’s Hospital and Temple Street earlier as players, management, members and staff alike enjoyed the celebrations.

Here’s a look at the heart-warming scenes from Crumlin first:

And then it was onto Temple Street.

There, the All-Ireland winning heroes met five-year-old Emly girl, Eve Creamer, who has a very rare, and cancerous, skin condition.
