Dublin's five-in-a-row champion football team brought Sam Maguire to the children's hospital in Crumlin to the delight of the patients - even those from Kerry.

The Dubs defeated the Kingdom in a superb final, running out 1-18 to 0-15 winners.

There were plenty of smiling faces as Jim Gavin and his Dublin team passed Sam Maguire around for the traditional photocall.

Earlier today, a mural celebrating Dublin's bainisteoir and the famous five-in-a-row was unveiled in Ballybough.

The mural features Gavin's image with the words 'Jim Gavin's Mighty Dubs' alongside him and five Sam Maguire cups above him.

Dublin's five-in-a-row was backed up by the ladies team, who beat Galway in front of a record crowd today to win their third consecutive All-Ireland title.

Dublin City Council announced that a homecoming for both teams will take place on Sunday, September 29.
