It's a tradition that is one of the most memorable parts of All-Ireland Final weekend.

Tipperary's hurlers brought the Liam McCarthy Cup to Crumlin on Monday afternoon to visit the patients in Our Lady's Children's Hospital. 

The stop in Crumlin was one of the last ones for the team before they arrive in Thurles with the victorious side on Monday evening.

Children and their parents met the stars of Sunday's game including captain Brendan Maher and man-of-the-match Seamus Callanan as the trophy was brought around the wards.

Despite the late-night celebrations, it's brilliant to see the players make the days of the children and their families in the hospital.
