WATCH: Dublin footballers join Dubs superfan for a sing-song at Crumlin children’s hospital

A great way to celebrate a fourth All-Ireland win in a row.

Yesterday, the Dublin team proved their class on the field by overpowering Tyrone and sealing a convincing win in the All-Ireland final, their fourth All-Ireland win on the trot.

On Monday, the Dubs proved their class off the field — joining Dublin super-fan Freya Fitzpatrick in her hospital room at Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital, Crumlin for a old-fashioned Dublin sing-song.

Dublin GAA shared a video on Twitter of the lads serenading the young fan with a rousing rendition of ‘Molly Malone’.

Freya is absolutely sports mad, and is a huge supporter of the Arsenal Women’s Team and the Dublin footballers.

Freya was diagnosed with a cancerous brain tumour earlier this year, a medulla glastoma, which is a very rare type of cancer that is very hard to treat, requiring months of radiation and chemotherapy.

Dublin’s stars brought the Sam Maguire with them and posed for pictures with the kids of St John’s Ward, including one baby who got to sit in the cup.

The visit to Crumlin will be followed this evening by a family-friendly homecoming celebration in Smithfield, that kicks off at 6.30pm on Monday evening.
