WATCH: Dublin team and their young fans celebrate together

The Dublin players wanted fans of all ages to be involved in celebrating their provincial title win yesterday, especially the younger generation.

The Sunday Game posted this clip on Facebook of the team taking time to have a kickabout, sign autographs and pose for selfies with the children there to cheer them on.

The team made sure to present the trophy to one young girl in particular.

Six-year-old Molly McNally, a devoted Dubs fan who is battling a rare form of cancer, has been adopted by Dublin GAA as their mascot, and she was in the crowd with dad Gerry to watch them claim their fifth consecutive Leinster title.

The team sought Molly out in the crowd and brought the Delaney Cup over to take a picture with her and some of the players.

Five-month-old Aidan Bastick, son of Dublin footballer Denis Bastick, also featured in the celebrations - being popped into the Cup for a photo opportunity.

He seems to be taking it all in his stride.
