In pics: Cork’s All-Ireland heroes bring the O’Duffy Cup to Crumlin Children’s Hospital

CORK’S ALL-IRELAND SENIOR and intermediate heroes will be welcomed home with an open-top bus parade later this evening, but members of both squads had an important appointment before boarding the train back south.

As is tradition for All-Ireland winners, the Cork senior and intermediate camogie teams brought the O’Duffy Cup to Crumlin Children’s Hospital on Monday morning to visit some of the patients and their families.

The Rebels clinched a fourth All-Ireland camogie title in five years at Croke Park yesterday, Orla Cotter’s injury-time free proving the difference after another titanic tussle with Kilkenny.  

There was also success for Cork at intermediate level as they put the anguish of two final defeats behind them to beat Down, 1-13 to 0-9. 

There were some lovely scenes in Crumlin this morning as the players shared their success with Cork fans, both young and old.
