One of the great traditions built up over the years is the visit of members of the Kilkenny All Ireland winning team to the Childrens Hospital in Crumlin on the morning after the All Ireland. This year was no different and captain Lester Ryan and manager Brian Cody and a large number of the team were delighted to meet many children and their parents at the hospital. A collection was taken up at the post match banquet on Saturday night and this was presented to the hospital on the occasion of the visit.
