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:
