To start off his renewed residency in Dublin, Sam Maguire took a trip to Crumlin Hospital today.

Dublin survived the Mayo scare in the replay of the All-Ireland final yesterday when a last second Cillian O'Connor free drifted wide of the goals at the Hill 16 end of Croke Park. They duly celebrated the achievement last night and this morning, they upheld the annual tradition of All-Ireland winning teams, by bringing the Sam Maguire cup to the patients at Crumlin Children's Hospital.

And everyone appeared to be in good form for their arrival.
