On Friday 2 December, patients and staff at the Mater Hospital were treated to a visit by the All-Ireland GAA Football Champions Dublin, who came to the hospital with the Sam Maguire trophy and festive spirit in abundance!

Seven of the championship-winning team spent three hours greeting delighted patients and their families, as well as passers-by in the corridors, many of whom were taken by surprise to see the giant trophy and some of football’s biggest stars.

We can’t thank the Dublin team enough for their generosity of time and for creating such a buzz around the Mater! Have a look at some more photos below.
