DUBLIN ARE CELEBRATING another All-Ireland victory today after they were crowned senior ladies football champions for the second successive year.

A 3-11 to 1-12 victory over Cork in yesterday’s final, before an attendance of 50,141 in Croke Park, ensured Dublin would retain the Brendan Martin Cup.  

After suffering three final losses to Cork between 2014 and 2016, this latest victory was one to savour for Dublin.

And as is the post-final tradition, Dublin’s players headed to Crumlin Children’s Hospital this morning to visit some of the patients and their families.
