One of the great traditions asociated with All Ireland wins is the visit of the players with the Liam Mc Carthy Cup to our Ladys Children's Hospital in Crumlin on the morning after the All Ireland. This year was no exception and captain Joey Holden, Manager Brian Cody and several players were very pleased to carry on the tradition. Martin Rowe was on hand to capture some very special moments.
